Bahtishahe's story

Bahtishahe is thirty-six years old. She is married and has five children between the ages of three to seventeen years old. She is a seamstress and lives in the south-western part of Kosovo with her children. Her husband works in Italy to support his family.

Bahtishahe and her husband love her children very much and she loves taking care of them. They are both trying to make good conditions for them.
Her family has had a longstanding problem with their bathroom. The money they generate is not enough to pay for repairing the bathroom. For the first time she is requesting a 500 EUR loan to buy a water heater and other essential parts for renovating and repairing the bathroom. She hopes that this loan will improve the health of her family and their living conditions, which is her goal.

Bahtishahe is very grateful to the Kiva lenders for contributing and assisting her family in obtaining these improved conditions.
