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

A loan helped a member from the vulnerable Roma community to repair one room of her house, where she will take care of the two little children who she babysits.

Marija's story

Marija is a 46-year-old member of the vulnerable Roma community. She is married and the proud mother of one son. In her community it is not very common to have only one child, indeed Marija had only one child due to a health problem that she had at the time.

Marija has become grandmother, but unfortunately she cannot take care of her grandson as he was born with disabilities and needs special care. In order to provide for her family Marija has been doing the babysitting for one child. Now she has the opportunity to take care of two little children, but in order to do so she will first need to repair at least one room of her house. Marija is hoping for the fourth time for Kiva lenders' support to be able to arrange a room of her house into a small kindergarten, where she will take care of the two little children she babysits for currently.

Marija thanks all Kiva lenders for the support given.
