but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped a lonely mother to pay for the next season of agricultural activities so she will be able to provide for her little daughter and her family.


Yllka's story

Yllka is a 28 year old lady from a small village in south Albania, who has found it difficult to smile. Yllka grew up in a family where her older brother and mother had the same disability condition. It was only her father, who 6 months ago passed away, who provided for the family. When she was just a child, she experienced her illness for the first time, an incurable illness that might leave her disabled if there are no other persons nearby to help her react.

When things finally seemed to get better for her, she met a boy with whom she fell in love and become mother of a lovely daughter. Her partner abandoned her and her daughter, with the justification that he could not risk having a daughter and wife with the same health problems.

All this has made Yllka a tough woman and a strong mother. She is the main provider at her family now, besides the disability pension of her brother and the retirement pension of her mother. She plants different vegetables during the entire year to make sure her family has always a plate on the table.

Yllka is asking for the first time for Kiva lenders to support her to pay for the next season of agricultural activities so she will be able to provide for her little daughter and her family.

Yllka thanks you all in advance for the support given!
