Llesh has experience in the livestock activity, because that’s “what I practiced since I was very young and knowing nothing better, I love what I currently do,” he said looking down. “If my parents didn’t have plans for me because they simply couldn’t, I have for my children. I want to educate them all, in order for them to have a decent life different from mine,” he continued saying. Llesh is in immediate need of a loan to build a good sized stable, so that all the goats sleep warmer at nights.

The project has selected 90 clients from Area Development Projects and local economic empowerment projects run by WorldVision Albania (WVA) to serve the very poor. It will focus on livestock and agriculture financing, technical assistance, entrepreneurial skills training and expanding market access for clients' products. Importantly, interest rate payments will be covered by WVA. By supporting this loan, you are providing opportunity to some of the poorest people in rural Albania who have little to no access to credit, even through basic microfinance institutions.
