A loan helped to connect the water and sewer systems.


Iulia's story

Iulia is 54 years old, married, and lives in Telenesti. She had a daughter who was married who died of cancer last year. The two children from her daughter are now in Iulia's care because the father of the children works in another town to financially support the children.

Iulia works at a walnut factory in the town and her husband is a tractor driver and they have modest incomes, which does not allow them to connect the house to the water and sewer systems. This creates discomfort especially for children.

Iulia found out about Kiva's loan program and decided to use it

Connecting to the aqueduct and sewage systems will allow Iulia to create the necessary hygienic conditions for her grandchildren as well as for the whole family.


This loan is special because:

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