A loan of $975 helped to pay for her surgery.


Albina's story

Albina is a 40-year-old married mother of two school-aged children, who needs your help! She lives in a little town in the northern Albania.



She has been told by the medical team that she must have a surgery soon, yet she is short of money. Her husband works, but according to her, it is difficult to save for the rainy day since his income is limited. "It works best for us to pay loan monthly installments, rather than save. This will be our fourth loan, and we have paid off the previous loans. The only difference is that we request this loan now, from Kiva lenders and I hope they will help me,” she said.
