A loan helped to connect to the aqueduct and sewerage.


Svetlana's story

Svetlana is 48 years old and lives in Telenesti town. She is married and has two sons who have their families already.

The house she lives in is inherited from her parents. Svetlana took care of her father, who was bedridden for a few years. She spent all of the savings on medicines and then on her father's funeral.

Svetlana is working at the nut factory with a very low salary. Her husband is working as a laborer at a company and they have very low incomes. Svetlana wants to improve the living conditions in the house where she lives. First of all, she wants to connect the house to the aqueduct system, so that she can connect a washing machine.

Svetlana decided to apply for a Kiva loan to connect the house to the aqueduct and sewerage system to arrange a bathroom, too. Connecting to the aqueduct and sewerage will improve the life quality of this family, as it is an essential condition for hygiene and sanitation.


This loan is special because:

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