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

A loan helped to open a scrap collecting center so a member of the Egyptian vulnerable community will be able to provide a better income for his family.

Xhevahir's story

Xhevahir is 27 years old and a member of the vulnerable Egyptian community, living in Korca city with his family. He is a proud father of three little children, two twins aged 10 years old and a daughter aged 7 years old. Unfortunately, Xhevahir's children suffer from the same incurable disease as him.

"I have done only four years of school, as I could not learn, due to this illness. My parents used to beat me to go to school but I couldn't, as I used to feel very bad when my fellows used to mock on me! Thanks to Kiva lenders this is not happening to my children as I could enroll them in a specialized school, where other children and teachers will understand their disability!"-said Xhevahir gratefully during the interview.

The disability pension that Xhevahir and his children receive is not enough to deal with all their expenses, For this, Xhevahir is thinking of opening a scrap collecting center. He has been doing collection of scrap a long time now but he believes that if he has his own collecting center he will be able to provide a better income for his family.

Xhevahir thanks you all for the support given and wishes all the best to all the lenders.
