Lilia's story

Lilia is 30 years old. She is married, and she has a child who is 8 years old. After the marriage, she was gone with her husband in Russia and worked there; they earned some money and bought an apartment. When her child went to school, she decided not to go abroad and to stay with her child. Lilia is employed in the function of needlewoman, but her husband is still working abroad.

Her house needs to be repaired: The doors should be changed, the walls and the ceiling need to be refreshed, and the kitchen should be repaired and equipped with furniture. Her savings are not sufficient for this. That is why she requires a loan through Kiva.

Due to Kiva, Lilia will be able to finish the repairs on the apartment. She will improve their living conditions, her husband will be able to return home to stay and not to work abroad, and the most important thing — their child will grow up not just with his mother, but the same with his father.


This loan is special because:

It helps families improve their living conditions and reduce energy consumption.
