A loan of $1,400 helped to renovate the facade and interior of the bar café.

Liljana's story

Liljana has been operating a bar café that has been frequented mostly by, let's say, the neighborhood’s mature men for the past three years. Now she wants to renovate the façade and the interior of the bar café. This is how the loan of 150,000 Albanian Lek that she is requesting from Kiva lenders will be used.

It has almost become a tradition in Albania in the recent years that residents discuss the top stories and topics on business and politics, and they can't wait to meet to share the news:) While in the cities, café bars are usually frequented by both genders, in the villages and towns these very same places are frequented almost 100% by mature men, where they spend sometime in the morning and evening, too, to say “hello” to each other.

This type of business can turn out to be a good one, but of course, it is a small family activity.

Liljana is married and has four children; they all live in a city in southeastern Albania.
