A loan helped to pay for his parents' medical expenses so they can recover their health and feel better.


Ledian's story

Ledian is a 22-year-old man from the capital city. He lives with his parents and three sisters. His parents have health problems, and as he is the only son, he feels that the responsibility for the family expenses is his. (As per the Albanian mentality, it is the son who has to take care of the parents, not the daughters.)

He works at a supermarket to provide for his family. His sisters work, but as they are schooling, most of the income goes toward their education.

"Both of my parents need medical care and I am trying very hard to secure the right medicines for them. I want them to recover and feel better," said Ledian desperately during the interview.

Ledian thanks all Kiva lenders for their support and wishes good health to you and your families.
