Age's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for a personal surgery so that this lonely, elderly lady will recover her health situation and be able to lead a normal life.

Age's story

Age is 60 years old and lives in a little town in northern Albania. For more than 15 years, she sold used clothes and other new items like socks, at lower prices at her city market until she became paralysed. With a lot of dedication and support from her niece, she is today able to walk even though with the need of a walking stick.

Her health situation though is not totally recovered. In order for her to recover her health, she needs to undergo a surgery for which expenses Age is hoping for Kiva lender support.

Age is respected by people who have known her for a long time now. “She is such a loving lady who never says no in helping others. She is a good-natured person," said one of her neighbours.
