Fatmir is 36 years old, married and living in the southern part of Kosovo with his family. In order to earn a living, Fatmir transports goods and materials for others for a small fee. Since his wife stays home to take care of the family and his income is low, the small old house they live in is still in urgent need of repair and renovations, which have not been completed due to lack of income. Specifically, her house has insulation problems and loses heat during the winter, making the home cold and increasing the costs to heat it to keep them warm. It is very important for her family to be able to live comfortably and to remain healthy so they are requesting a loan in order to address this problem. After this, he hopes that the living conditions for his family will be dramatically improved. He wants to thank all of the lenders for their help and support.

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.
