Muamet is a first time client of VisionFund Albania. He has been producing and selling fresh produce for the past 10 years.
Here is what he said during his interview with the loan officer. “I enjoy agriculture, and enjoy selling as well. During these past years of being in this kind of activity, I have established a good clientele. I believe that I have served them well. I produce in large quantities, and sell in the supermarkets of my nearby town.”
Muamet is determined to continue growing the business, and for this, he needs your help to invest in agricultural land.
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.
