A loan of $1,250 helped to pay for the renovation of her room.

Shqipe's story

Shqipe is thirty-three years old. She lives in Kosovo. She is a married woman and has three children ranging from six to ten years old. Shqipe is a housewife, taking care of her children and their home in the small town that they live in.

Shqipe's husband works as an auto mechanic. His job is the family’s main source of income but he doesn’t earn enough to support the needs of his family. A while back they had started to renovate their home, but the money he makes is not enough to finish the work that needs to be completed on the house. There is one more room left that has not been finished.

Now Shqipe is requesting a loan to pay for the renovation of her room, which will fulfill her goal of completing her home and giving a better life and more security to her children.
Renovation of this room will bring comfort to the members of the family, because they will have more space and her children can have their own room so they don't have to be as cramped as they have been so far.

She is very thankful to KIVA lenders and promises to make her payments punctually!
