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

A loan helped to pay for an eye intervention in order to improve her vision and help every aspect of her life.

Saliona's story

Saliona is a 21-year-old girl from Korca. She lives in a grounded-floor house with her parents and her younger sister. To provide for her family, Saliona works in a beauty salon as a hairdresser. Her mother works as a cleaner in a hotel, while her father works in construction.

Since she was a child, Saliona has had to wear glasses because of vision problems. Recently, she was told by a doctor that, with an intervention, she could improve her sight which would help every aspect of her life, primarily her job. She cannot afford the intervention with her savings from her job, so she is asking, for the first time, for support from Kiva lenders in order to pay for the intervention.

Saliona thanks all Kiva lenders for their support and wishes all the best to you and your families.
