A loan of $2,500 helps to pay her husband's medical clinic expenses so he will recover his health and be able to lead a productive life.


Tonina's story

Tonina is a 50-year-old rural woman. She is married and a proud mother of two grown-up children. Tonina lives only with her husband, since her two children are studying and living at the capital city.

Tonina's husband is a street vendor. He sells roasted corn during the hot sunny days in the streets of Lac city to earn his livelihood. During the dry winter days, he sells baked chestnuts. When he can, he also does house painting.

He has had some health problems previously, and as he was infected by Covid-19, things got worse. He needs specific treatments to recover his health.

Tonina is asking Kiva lenders one more time for support to pay for the needed medical expenses of her husband so he will recover his health and be able to lead a normal life again.


This loan is special because:

It helps families pay for potentially life-saving medical expenses.
