Lushnja, Fier County, Albania / Health

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

A loan helped to pay for knee treatment in order to continue his job as a footballer of his hometown club.

Mikel's story

Mikel is a 28-year-old man from Lushnja city. He lives with his parents and his brothers. Mikel is very passionate about football and has played since he was a kid. He is part of his hometown team. During a match he injured his knee and for this he has to make an intervention.

Mikel needs Kiva lender support in order to pay for the intervention as he cannot cover all the expenses, because in Albania the football players of the city teams are not well-paid and currently he cannot play due to this injury.

Mikel thanks all Kiva lenders for their support and for the possibility given.
