Zorica's story

Zorica is a 20-year-old woman who lives in one of the vulnerable ethnic minority communities in Kosovo. She is a young mother with two children, ages 6 months and 2 years. She is a stay-at-home mother. Her husband works as a technical staff member in a primary school. They live in a small village under extremely poor and unhealthy conditions. They are in urgent need to do some renovations to their house before the winter. Their house has not been repaired for a long time. Her house has a heat-loss problem due to poor insulation. Every winter it is very hard to keep the house warm, and her children always get sick due to the cold. For the first time, she is requesting a loan to renovate two rooms and also the bathroom in order to be ready before the winter. After repairing the house Zorica will be able to create normal living conditions for the family. Zorica appreciates the help from Kiva lenders.
