A loan of $975 helped to install doors and windows in their rundown family home.


Odise's story

Odise is a 29-year-old Egyptian married father of two young kids; four and one years old. They live in the suburbia of a main city where the majority of the Egyptian community lives. Their living conditions are very poor and Odise is doing all he can to improve them. For the past 10 years, he has been buying and selling bananas, and the income he has been generating from this activity is the only one for his family. “There are no others who sell bananas in my neighborhood; thus, I get more clients,” Odise said. Odise is now requesting a loan to install doors and windows in their rundown family home. All he hopes is that Kiva lenders will show some consideration and help him out by lending to him.
