Nusha's story

Nusha is a sworn virgin from north Albania. Balkan sworn virgins are women who take a vow of chastity and wear male clothing in order to live as men in patriarchal northern Albanian society. Nusha has taken her vow to be able to be the support for her parents and her disabled sister, as they had no one else who could take care of them.


To provide for her family, Nusha does different agricultural activities. She also receives a small pension as her sister's caretaker. Nusha lives with her elderly mother and her disabled sister in a one-room house which she has built herself, with the materials she was able to buy after a Kiva loan.

Nusha,seen in the photo with her nephew, for which she has taken permission from his parents, is asking this time for Kiva lenders' support to repair the stable of her cows so they will be safer and secure during the upcoming rainy season.
