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

A loan helped to buy olive and citrus trees for planting at this young lady's family land, so in a few years her family will produce olive oil for their consumption and citrus for selling.

Olta's story

"All our neighbours have more than 10 years since they planted their olive trees and are today able to secure their families' needs for olive oil. We used to believe that olive trees could not grow in our region, but their orchards' success is proving the opposite! While I believe that from one fruit, one can never have enough, are all the fruits from the citrus family, like lemons, oranges and tangerines, so I plan to plant the other part of the land with these fruits!" said Olta optimistically during the interview.

Olta is a 27-year-old lady from a small village in south Albania. She lives with her parents and her sister and brother. Her parents are quite elderly to work the land, while she and her siblings all do office jobs. For this, she believes that the best opportunity is to plant her family's land with trees.

Olta hopes she will have Kiva lenders' attention among many other Kiva clients.
