Ardian's story

Ardian is back. This time he is asking for support from Kiva lenders to be able to open a small food market near his house so he will be able to provide an extra income for his family.

"The only income that I bring to the family is from my disability pension, but I feel that I can run a small food market, and, in this way, be able to provide an income for my family. I will only sell the most necessary products, so I won't have to spend much on inventory!" said Ardian, full of hope, during the interview.

Ardian lives with his wife, who works for a famous stylist here in Albania. She does sewing, but also styling. She is very talented, but, unfortunately, she hasn't had the financial opportunity to have her own tailoring business. Ardian is the father of two grown-up children. His son lives in Italy with his family; his daughter lives in the capital city of Albania. She works there and, time after time, supports her parents financially.
