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


A loan helped a rural woman to repair her family shelter so it will be safer and warmer during the freezing cold months of winter season.


Nurije's story

Nurije is a 62-year-old lady from northern Albania. She is married and lives with her elderly husband and her youngest son and his family, as the tradition of northern Albania demands. She and her husband are both retired.

Besides this, they try to perform a little agricultural activity for their family consumption and also for selling. They sell mainly a local beverage called "raki." While her son and her daughter-in-law are both employed in nearby businesses, Nurije and her husband take care also of their grand-child.

Nurije is hoping for the first time for Kiva lenders' support to be able to make some repairs at her family shelter, so it will be safer and warmer during the freezing cold months of winter season of north Albania.

"We have built the house several years ago, but since then we have never changed the windows and the outside door, which are very old and need to be replaced immediately," said Nurije during the interview.

Nurije thanks all Kiva lenders for the support given.
