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


A loan helped a retired teacher to pay for her son's specialisation fee so he will be able to be better at his profession and have higher chances for a better job in the future.


Loreta's story

Loreta is a hardworking, 64-year-old lady from south Albania. She has worked as a teacher for 40 years of her life. During the summer seasons and weekends, when she was not teaching, she used to work as a cook in a traditional restaurant, where she is actually employed.

Loreta lives with her elderly husband, his son, her daughter-in-law, and her adorable little granddaughter. Loreta is hoping for Kiva lenders' support to help her son to get enrolled and to pay the fee for a specialization, so he will be able to be better at his profession and have higher chances for a better job in the future. "I see him struggling to provide for his family, as me and his father did during our entire life, as the profession of the teacher is not valued in Albania. For this I want to help him!" said Loreta during the interview.

This is Loreta's seventh time applying for a loan in ASF. Yet this time is different, because she is requesting it from Kiva and she is excited. She is known and respected by all the people in the neighborhood for her personable, responsible, and loving nature.
