A loan of $950 helped to repair her old and damaged small family home.

Xhixhe's story

Xhixhe is in her mid fifties with six children and became widowed long ago. “Raising all the children on my own and taking care of them financially and otherwise, has been a real struggle. At times I thought I wouldn’t make it through, yet I made it, and am happy now,” she explains. “I was very patient and had unconditional love for them, and kept praying to God to give me strength to deal with all the hardship.”

Five years back, Xhixhe started to babysit and look after elders and has since been doing that. “It suits me--my caring and nurturing nature--and I just love it,” she said. At the moment, she is looking after an elderly couple and their grandchildren.

Xhixhe now wants to improve her family's living conditions and is requesting a loan. She keeps praying that lenders at Kiva will lend to her.
