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

A loan helped to pay for a course for cooking for himself so he will be able to find a better job and provide more for his family.

Arlind's story

Arlind is a 27-year-old, hardworking man from Pogradec city. He is a devoted husband and father to a little son. To provide for his family he does two jobs, a full-time job as a bartender and and part time as a waiter. He is not happy with the income, and for this reason he wants to do a course for cooking. He will be able to work in restaurants and receive a better salary.

"After having our first son, for me and my wife it become very difficult to manage all expenses with what we currently earn. I know a lot of friends who are working in restaurants and are making a good income. I do like very much cooking and I think that the fact that I have working as a bartender for more than five years will be an advantage for me!" said Arlind during the interview.

Arlind is very thankful for your support and wishes all the best to all Kiva lenders, for helping people in need like him realize a dream.
