Hatixhe
Hatixhe is a 42-year-old Egyptian lady. She is married and has four children who attend school. Unlike others of her community who live in the suburbia of major cities, she chose to live in a village and change her family’s life for the better.
Even though she lives in a village, she still resells used clothes to residents around. Hatixhe has been reselling for ten years.

The loan she is requesting from VisionFund Albania is the second one; the previous has been paid. She wants to repair their house, and this is why she needs this loan.

About VisionFund Albania

VisionFund Albania is a micro-finance subsidiary of child hunger nonprofit World Vision International. Striving to improve child welfare, the organization offers a variety of loan products designed for rural, traditionally underserved clients and their families. These products include agriculture, business and household improvement loans, as well as "integration loans" targeted to help the poorest, most vulnerable Albanian households acquire value chain resources.

While VFA is focused on the empowerment of the poor overall, it pays special attention to women. About 60% of loans to entrepreneurs on Kiva go to women.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
