A loan of $3,375 helped plaster the walls of his house and reconstruct his bathroom.

Ishtvan's story

Ishtvan is from Beregovo. Since his last loan from Kiva, his family has run into some problems; his wife fell ill and they had to sell the van they bought with the loan, as well as dismiss the crew they'd hired, to take her to Russia for medical treatment. After his wife's treatment ran its course and they returned to Beregovo, Ishtvan bought a small car and started working again by himself; in addition, he continued the renovation of their home from where he left off. With time, Ishtvan hopes to pay back the previous loan he took out, as well as hire another crew for work; for the time being, he would like to improve his family's living conditions, and is seeking an additional loan of 40,000 hryvnia to plaster the walls of his house inside and out, as well as renovate his bathroom.
