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

A loan helped a member form the vulnerable Egyptian community to pay for the legalisation of her family house so her family will have ownership on their own house.

Anila's story

Anila is a 51-year-old member from the vulnerable Egyptian community. She is married and proud mother of two sons. With her family she lives in Elbasan city in a house she and her husband built themselves around 20 years ago. Until now they have not had the opportunity to legalise the house where they live, but recently the municipality of Elbasan city is offering the opportunity for all members of the vulnerable communities to legalise their houses. This costs a little but Anila is optimistic as this way her family will have ownership of their own house. Anila hopes to have Kiva lenders' support to pay for the legalisation of her family house.

Anila works as a seamstress in a clothes factory, her husband works as a painter, while her oldest son works as a waiter in a bar. They are a respected family in their neighbourhood.
