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


A loan helped to work the land, to pay for part of the seeds she is going to plant, and for additional fertilizer so she will have a good harvest.


Shqipe's story

Shqipe (which means "eagle" in English) is a mother of two children ages 20 and 11 years old.  Agriculture and livestock have been her only source of income for years. Wholesalers and retailers buy her products from a specified location. Therefore, she does not need any transportation to take her fresh produce to the market.

While her husband works with a tractor and provides services to local villagers, Shqipe plants in quantities. She raises clover and vetch for animals and also wheat. She has cherry, plum, and pear trees, and a dairy cow.

She is asking for the fourth time for Kiva lenders' support as she wants to work the land, to pay for part of the seeds she is going to plant, and for additional fertilizer that will help her to have a good harvest also this year.
