Ritvan's story

Ritvan is a young member from the vulnerable Roman community. He is asking for Kiva lenders' support to buy a motorcycle that will help him with his daily collecting and selling scrap activity.

Ritvan is only 20 years old, but as a normality for his community, he has already found a partner with which he has also a little son. However, his partner and son are not registered on his family certificate since his partner is still a minor and cannot marry legally. Ritvan lives with his close family and his grand-mother. He is the only provider in his family.

Ritvan thanks all Kiva lenders for the support given to make a better income thus to improve his family living conditions.
