Ilir
Ilir already has a dairy cow with a baby calf, and at the moment needs a loan to add another one.

Ilir lives in rural central Albania and is thirty-four years old and married with three children, ranging in age between eleven and two. His main activity for the past fifteen years has been agriculture and livestock, and has also been selling fresh produce to locals.

Also, in Greece he worked on and off as a landscaper and he very much enjoyed that, but now he plans to stay in his village full time and expand his activity by adding more animals and building a stable.

It will focus on livestock and agriculture financing, technical assistance, entrepreneurial skills training and expanding market access for clients' products.
