A loan helped to change the windows and the front door of her family shelter in order to make it a warmer place before the winter comes.


Çile's story

Çile is a 69-year-old rural woman. She lives with her elderly husband, with her in the photo, in a small village located in northern Albania, in a very old house. Despite the retirement pension they both receive, Çile's husband works part time as a postman. As in the area where they live it freezes in winter, Çile wants to change the windows and the front door of her family shelter so the wind and cold will no longer enter through the windows during the winter.

Çile thanks all Kiva lenders for their support and wishes all the best to you and your families.

It enables women living in rural areas to access credit tailored to their needs.
