A loan of $1,375 helped build a stable.


Emrije's story

Emrije is forty-five, married and has three teenage children, one of her children suffer from severe autism. They live in the northeast part of the country, which is characterized by the extreme cold temperatures that affect animals, just like it affects people. This is the reason that Emrije is requesting a loan to build a stable for her animals and this needs to be built just before winter kicks in, starting in the very beginning of October. This is not her first loan, and the previous one has been repaid on time. For the past ten years, Emrije has been operating a livestock business and has been the only financial provider for her family ever since. Her husband has been helping her as well with the business. “If there is any extra moneys, I would invest it on my children’s education,” she said, “yet, the extra expenses on my sick child and the fact that I am the sole financial provider, doesn’t allow me to save any pennies” she continues saying with her eyes full of tears. Emrije is extremely thankful to potential Kiva lenders for their understanding.
