A loan helped to help a member from the Egyptian vulnerable community to pay for her elderly mother-in-low medical expenses and to buy a washing machine.


Aurora's story

Aurora would never ask for a loan to buy for a washing machine, she would continue to wash her family clothes by hand, even in the middle of the cold of the freezing cold of Korca city, as she doesn't want to add any expense for her poor and vulnerable family. But since she needed to ask for a loan to pay for her mother-in-low medical expenses, she thought to add the loan a little bit so she could buy also a washing machine and stop wash the clothes by hand, mostly because she fears that if she gets sick there would be no one to take care her familiars, as her husband is during most of the day working.

Aurora is a young lady, member from the Egyptian vulnerable community. She is married and lives with her husband and her elderly parents-in-low. Her husband works as a painter and Aurora works whenever is called as a cleaner.

Aurora thanks you all for the support and wishes all Kiva lenders Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
