Naime, 47, is married and has one grownup child. She has been working in the livestock industry for about ten years and has been making delicious goat and sheep cheeses and salty/non-salty butter with the help of her husband and only child. They all live in a rural village in the central eastern part of the country, where the terrain and weather are a great help in the animal husbandry activity.

Naime works hard for long hours every day of the week in the animal husbandry and producing dairy products business; yet, despite her exhaustion, she’s been content with the income she has been generating. In late September, Naime reached VisionFund Albania after she had decided to request a loan of 300,000 LEK to buy two cows; the previous two loans are successfully repaid.

Naime hopes to get support from Kiva lenders.
