Yllson's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase fresh produce from farmers and then sell it in cities nearby.

Yllson's story

We have the opportunity to meet with Yllson again. With gratefulness to all of you, he says that his last loan helped him to start up a produce wholesale business, purchasing from area farmers to sell in cities.

His initiative was successful, so Yllson needs the new loan to continue this activity. He has also bought a big van, which helps him with the transportation of his products. From this business, he earns around $5,000/year. This is the main source of income for Yllson to maintain his family. He also owns 6 dynyms (equal to 6/10 of a hectacre) of agricultural land, where he plants mainly white beans, a characteristic plant of southeastern part of Albania. He makes earnings from this of just around $700/year.

His 20-year-old son is now working with Yllson, whereas the younger son is following his studies at the high school.
