A loan helped to pay for post-surgery medical treatments to recover quickly and lead a productive and fulfilling life.


Marçef's story

Marçef, 31, is from Pogradec, a small city in south Albania. He is a devoted husband and father to a little daughter. He works as a waiter in a bar in his city, as seen in the photo.

Four months ago, Marçef had, for the first time, lenders' support to pay for a surgery for himself. He says, "Thanks to your support and thanks God everything went okay." Nevertheless, he explains, he needs post-surgery medical treatments to recover quickly and lead a productive and fulfilling life. He adds, "I hope to have your understanding one more time on this matter!"

Marçef thanks all Kiva lenders for the support and wishes all the best to all of you!
