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

A loan helped an elderly villager to buy a cow so she can provide the dairy products for her family.

Marije's story

Marije is an elderly villager from north Albania, who is asking for the first time for Kivas lenders' support to buy a cow, so she can provide the dairy products for her and her husband. "If I will have a cow to provide the dairy products for my family, the living expenses for us would be literary nothing, as I also provide all needed vegetables, fruits, corn and wheat for our living!" said Marije during the interview.

Marije lives only with her retired husband in a village near Lac city. They perform different agricultural activities to provide for their own consumption and also for selling. From the selling, they make approximately $90 income/month, which they are very happy about.
