Enver is in his mid-seventies and is married with a grown-up child of his own. For the past ten years, though, he has been taking care of his two nephews, whose parents passed away in a car accident. The nephews were eight and ten years old at the time and they needed care, but Enver was not at a young age to be taking on such a major responsibility. His plan now is to send them to university, and in order to afford their education he needs to expand his business. He has left his business to his nephews in his written will.
Enver is applying for a Kiva loan through VisionFund Albania to purchase insecticides for his vineyards, apple orchards, and vegetables. He has been a VFA client for some time and this is his sixth loan through the institution.
Enver seeks Kiva lenders’ consideration in this matter and thanks everyone in advance for their support.
