Hene'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 Egyptian community pay for some personal medical clinic expenses to help her recover her health.


Hene's story

Hene is a member of the vulnerable Egyptian community who lives alone in a small apartment in southern Albania. Her shelter, as you can tell from the photo, is badly equipped, but Hene has no problem with it. "I have preferred to help my children rather than creating luxury for myself!," said Hene proudly during the interview. Although Hene is retired, she has continued her job as a cleaner in a dental clinic in her city, as the job keeps her occupied and most of all provides a good income for her.

Hene is hoping to obtain Kiva lenders' support for the first time, so she can pay for some personal medical clinic expenses to help her recover her health. She has been having health problems for a long time now, but after COVID-19, her medical situation worsened, and doctors have recommended several treatments for her to recover her health and be able to live an active life.

Hene thanks all Kiva lenders for the support given and wishes all the best to all of you!
