“The VisionFund loans have been a Godsend so I could provide for my family” was Dave’s bold statement.

Dave needs some financial help to expand her existing animal stable and she wants to thank all Kiva lenders in advance. The loan she is requesting is 80,000 Albanian Lek and it will be her sixth loan from VisionFund Albania. All of her loans have been paid on time and Dave has built a great relationship with the loan officers who assist her.

Dave is married and fifty-five years old with a twenty-three-year old son who lives with her in rural north Albania, in a little secluded village.

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.
