Behije is a widow. She is a mother of two children, ages 10 and 3 years old. One of them goes to school. Her husband has died and she lives with her sister and brother and her two children.

Her brother works in construction. His job is the family’s main source of income. He doesn't earn enough to support the needs of his family. Recently, they had a problem with the electricity installation and water. The money he generates is not enough to support the family's needs.

Behije now is requesting a loan to do the new installation of water and electricity in her house. The loan will help them to live in a comfortable environment. Her goal is to make a new installation for the house, and offer a better, secure life for her family.

She is very grateful to all Kiva lenders!
