A loan of $1,500 helps to make urgent repairs on his home's roof before freezing weather comes.


Bujar's story

Bujar is a kind-hearted, elderly member of the vulnerable Egyptian community in Albania. He lives with his wife in an old house that they built themselves when they were in their twenties. Bujar and his wife receive retirement pensions, and their grown and married children help them from time to time.

Many times in the past Bujar and his wife tried to make their house a more comfortable place for their children. Now, however, it needs urgent repairs done on the roof. He wants to get this done before the freezing cold months so that his home will be warmer for him and his elderly wife.

Bujar is hoping for the first time for Kiva lenders’ support. He thanks all Kiva lenders for the support and trust given him and wishes all the best to all of you!


This loan is special because:

It helps heavily marginalized Roma and Egyptian populations create better lives for their families.
