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

A loan helped to pay for her husband's medical clinic expenses, so he will keep his health situation under control and be able to lead his normal activities.

Polikseni's story

This is Polikseni, a very warm-hearted and diligent woman. She is 68 years old and lives only with her husband. They are both retired and their main income is a little retirement pension of $106/month for Polikseni and disability income for her husband as little as $289/month. Her husband, even though disabled, works in a very small shop as a watchmaker on short hours, just to provide something more for his family and to feel himself useful.

When Polikseni's husband was 28 years old, he was injured in the workplace and that left him a paraplegic. He also had another accident some time ago, which caused injuries he is still suffering from. He needs to take continuous medicaments and treatments now to be able to lead a normal life activity. This is why Polikseni is hoping for your support one more time.

They are both very thankful for the Kiva lenders' previous support, and they wish you Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
