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

A loan helped a young man to open a small fruit and vegetables store so he can keep providing for his family.

Ardi's story

Ardi is a young man from Pogradec city. During the warm season, he is employed at a manual carwash where he receives $1 for each car he washes.

"During winter, beside the fact that the water freezes, the number of cars that come are very low. The activity does not provide enough and the boss closes it, leaving me jobless and without a possibility to provide for my family!" said Ardi during the interview.

Ardi is hoping that Kiva lenders will support him to open a small fruit and vegetables store, so he will be able to keep providing for his family.

"I am sure it will have success as in our neighbourhood, there is no other shop of vegetables and fruits!" said Ardi optimistically during the interview.
