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

A loan helped to add dry fruit inventory at his shop, because Albanians make a sweet called "baklava" made with dried fruit for the end of the year.

Arben's story

It is an Albanian tradition that the New Year's Eve must be celebrated with desserts like "bakllava" or "kadifi", both are made with lot of dried fruits. Dried fruits in Albania are very expensive, but once a year every family gets them.

For the above, Arben wants to add dry fruit inventory at his fruits and vegetables shop, seen in the photo.

Arben is married and the father of three little children. He and his wife work at the the shop during all day alternately. This is their only income, but they are satisfied. Their plan is to open another fruits and vegetables shop next year.
