A loan helped a member from the vulnerable Egyptian community to repair his family shelter before Christmas.


Artan's story

Artan is a 49-year-old member from the vulnerable Egyptian community living in Pogradec city with his family.

He is hoping for the first time for Kiva lenders' support, to be able to repair his family shelter before Christmas, so his family will celebrate warmly and comfortably on Christmas for the first time in years.

Artan sells different fruits and vegetables, as seen in the photo at the outside part of a supermarket. Beside this, he also sings and is often invited to different family ceremonies, which recently have been just a few, due to the pandemic situation.

"I promised my children last year that this year we would have a more warm house and a beautiful tree with presents after the Christmas night; I hope you will help so I won't let them down!" said Artan with beaming eyes during the interview.
