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

A loan helped pay for his dental care so he will recover his oral health and will be able to enjoy all kinds of foods.

Mariglen's story

Mariglen is 33 years old and lives alone in a small house in southeast Albania. To provide for himself, he has been working in a manual carwash for more than five years. He receives less than $1 for every car that he washes. He washes approximately 15 cars/day, which means a $13 income per day.

Mariglen has been living alone for a long time now. This has caused him to get malnutrition mainly from fast foods. Besides the health effects that these foods have, they have damaged also his dental health, for which he needs to undergo several treatments to recover and to be able to eat all kinds of foods. "I have promised myself that after the dental treatment I will start to eat more homemade foods!"-said Mariglen during the interview.

Mariglen thanks you all for the support and wishes all the best to Kiva lenders.
