Kleo needs your financial help to startup a livestock activity: he wants to buy a dairy cow to start. The amount of loan he is requesting is 300,000 Albanian Lek. He also works in the family’s agricultural business, taking care of the apple and cherry orchard plantation.

Kleo is a 22-year-old single man and the younger of two brothers. His brother works and lives in Greece and their father passed away long ago. As such, he holds the burden of the family, financial and otherwise. With his mother they try hard to make it. Kleo is a very talented young man also; he plays musical instruments.

Kleo has been photographed in front of the small building that, hopefully, soon will be the stable for the animals.
