A loan of $1,350 helped to build a toilet in her tiny one-room house.


Hidajete's story

Hidajete is a fifty-two-year-old Romani woman from the Roma marginalized community of central Albania. She is married, and has three children ranging from twenty-eight to twenty-four years old. For some time now, she has been receiving a disability compensation. Kindly note that many people from the marginalized communities of Albania become disabled at a very young age because of the extremely poor living conditions and the lack of access to proper nutrition and Hidajete is one of them. Hidajete recently requested a loan through VisionFund Albania's institution to improve her family's living conditions by first, building a toilet. "Maybe my income is very little," she says, "yet, I promise to Kiva lenders that I will pay back the loan on time," she continues.
