Kadife is fifty nine years old. She is married and has two grown up children, with one of them still attending university. They live in a village not far from a main city located in central Albania. They sell their agricultural products in the local market of this city. Some of the villagers have established a relationship with the city’s residents and they accept orders for their products and some others just sell in the city’s market.

Kadife has been selling agricultural/livestock products for fifteen years and through this activity she has been able to support all of her family. With this loan, she wants to add another dairy cow to the existing herd and repair the stable.

She is very happy that she has been granted such an opportunity to expand her activities.
