A loan of $700 helped to correct faulty electrical home wiring and thereby protect her house from another fire.


Nurije's story

Nurije is an Egyptian from one of the two most vulnerable ethnic minority communities of Albania and a mother of two independent children. She is retired and receives a pension, yet she works at her children’s businesses as well. In addition, she looks after her husband, who is been paralyzed for almost a decade.

A couple of weeks ago, Nurije experienced home fires because of faulty electrical home wiring. She managed to repair the house with her savings and with help from her children; however, to prevent the same thing happening again, she needs to change the wiring system, which electricians have told her was installed incorrectly.

In order to make this happen, she is applying for a loan. She hopes that lenders will show understanding and help her.
