A loan of $3,175 helped with access to running water and sanitation.


Vladimir's story

Vladimir is 31 years old, and is married with two children. He works as a manager at a pig farm for the past 5 years. His wife is currently on maternity leave after working prior at a candy factory. All the money they had received so far from their salaries they have invested in the construction and renovation of their house. Their house does not have running water and sewage that is why they do not have up-to-date bathroom facilities inside. To solve this problem, Vladimir recently dug a water well next to his house to supply it with running water. However to build an anex to his house and turn it into a bathroom and lavatory, Vladimir does not have sufficient funds, for this reason he is applying for a Kiva loan. Vladimir wishes very much to receive help from Kiva.


This loan is special because:

It improves a family’s health through water and sanitation.
