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

A loan helped to pay for his mother's medical expenses in order to help her feel better.

Andrea's story

Andrea is back, a few months after receiving a similar Kiva loan.

Andrea is the oldest child of his mother, and a has a half-brother, as his mother divorced his father and got married again. Andrea lives with his mom's family and farms to provide for his family. He has 18 dynym (4.5 acres) of family land where he plants wheat, beans, potatoes and other vegetables for selling and for family consumption. He also prunes trees for others during the spring time to make extra income for his family.

Andrea's first loan was used to pay for his mother's medical expenses, which enabled her to continue her treatment. Unfortunately, she didn't recover and her health conditions have gotten worse. Andrea is asking for Kiva lenders' support another time to send his mom to the capital city for further examinations in order to improve her health conditions.

A part of the loan will be used to pay the outstanding balance from the first one.

Andrea thanks you all for the support and wishes you all the best.
