A loan of $625 helped to renovate her family's toilet.

Zineta's story

Zineta is 44 years old and comes from the vulnerable ethnic minority community. She is married and has four children, ranging from 11 to 18 years old, all of whom are in school. Zineta’s husband is employed as a construction worker.

Many people from these minority communities in Kosovo, such as Zineta and her family, live in extremely poor conditions. They lack access to proper nutrition and care, as well as being exposed to unsanitary conditions.

Despite that, Zineta sometimes works and sells handicrafts when she has an opportunity to. The money that she and her husband generate is not enough to cover all of the daily living expenses.

Although raising four children and keeping food on the table is difficult at this time, Zineta remains optimistic. She is always smiling.

The toilet that they have is very old. Zineta recently requested the loan to improve her family's living conditions by starting with renovating the toilet.

She promises she will repay the loan on time. She is very grateful to the KIVA lenders for improving her family’s conditions and contributing to her children’s overall health.
