Kimete is 47 years old, and she lives in the southern part of Kosovo. She is the mother of four adult children. She and her husband live with one of their sons and his wife. Kimete is a housewife, and her husband works in a call center, together with the son and daughter-in-law who they live with.

The house where they live has another floor that the son and his wife would like to fix up so they can live there with some privacy and start their own family. This would make the living arrangements more comfortable and provide them with their own space to raise children. The renovations that are needed include flooring and doors and windows.

Kimete is very grateful for this opportunity, and she wants to thank all of the lenders!

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
