Shukrije's story

Shukrije is 48 years old. She is happily married to her husband and is the mother of a 7-year-old son. She is currently working in a police station as an administrator and her husband is working as a guard. Both of them receive very low salaries. For several years Shukrije has wanted to do renovations on her house. She has tried unsuccessfully to save the money for the costs. Now, for the first time, she is requesting a loan in order to change the windows and doors and to improve the facade of her house. She would like to address the longstanding heat loss problems she has. Every winter it costs a lot of money to buy the coal to keep this house warm. Shukrije believes that after renovating the house, she will be able to create better living conditions for the family by keeping them healthy and lowering their cost of living. Shukrije appreciates the help from KosInvest/Kiva.
