A loan of $475 helped to pay off her university tuition fees.

Manjela's story

Manjela is an Egyptian Albanian and is requesting a loan to pay off her university fees.

She is a 24-year-old married mother of this 2-year-old adorable daughter who is in the photo with her. They reside in a city with a large number of ethnic Egyptian Albanian people. “I have been going to school to become a teacher, which has been my dream for a very long time. I can’t wait to finish my studies, write my exams and then hopefully find a job in my field. There are schools serving particularly our community where I can teach. At the same time though, I have been selling used-clothes in order to make a little income. My husband, too, has been working as a waiter. We both are young and hard-workers, and we hope that someday we will see the benefit of working hard,” Manjela said.

“This is my first time applying for a loan, but knowing myself very well, I would ensure Kiva’s potential lenders that I will pay the loan on time,” she ended saying.
