Vitore is in her late 40s and has been successful at her business activity for the last 20 years. She lives in a little village not far from a northern Albanian town. She is married and has four children, with two of whom are still attending school.

This is the second loan for her; she established her agricultural business in viticulture with the first one. With the loan she is requesting now from Kiva lenders, she will invest in a fence around her vineyard.

Vitore has been selling grapes and wine to local markets and has built a steady clientele. Her income is the only one in her family, yet it has been good, and she has been able to provide more than the basics to her children.
