Vjollca
Vjollca is an Egyptian widow woman and has two grown-up children. She adores her grandchildren who are in the photograph with her. "This is where I spent my whole time cooking and bathing them and looking after them" Vjollca said. “ They are my life,” she continued kissing them.

They live in a main city in the southern Albania within their community, where she sells used items like the majority of people in her neighborhood.

The reason Vjollca is requesting this loan is to repair her run down home. Her previous loans have been paid back on time and she has been a good client of VisionFund Albania for long time.

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.
