Marine's story

Marine, 44 years old, lives in her old house, located in a capital city suburb. She is married and has two grown sons living with her. For nearly 10 years, Marine has worked in the hospital as a nurse, earning a small monthly salary (approximately $135).

In order to meet her increasing household expenses, Marine plans to renovate one of her rooms and rent it out. She will use this Kiva loan to buy construction materials and to pay for workers. After the renovation, Marine will get rent from lodgers and have additional monthly funds. This will be a great relief for the family and Marine will be able to improve their standard of living in the future.
