Sheqer's story

Sheqer is 53 years old and married. He is the father of four. Sheqer lives in the southern part of Kosovo in a minority community. To earn a living, he works as a woodcutter in his area. The family's current main source of income comes from him. His wife is a housewife taking care of the children. Their house has not had any repairs or renovations in the last several years. Every winter it costs a lot of money to buy coal to keep the house warm.

Sheqer’s family always feels cold and gets sick in the winter. Sheqer requested a loan in order to do general renovation of the house. He needs to change the roof and to renovate the toilet. The loan will help him to improve conditions for his family. He is hoping to give a better life and education to his children in the future. He is very grateful to all Kiva lenders!
