A loan of $1,300 helped to renovate her house.


Shemsije's story

Shemsije is fifty-one years old. She comes from the Ashklai community, and is the mother of four children between the ages of 11 and 25. Her husband works as a taxi driver; she is a housewife.

Shemsije has always wanted to see her house beautiful, but never had the chance to renovate. She is now requesting 1000 euros as a loan in order to do these renovations. This loan will help her to improve the living conditions for her and her family.

Her goal is to give her children the best future, and to save money for them.

She wants to thank all Kiva lenders!
