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


A loan helped to buy two cows from which they will be able to sell the raw milk and this way make an income for their family.


Angje's story

Angje and her husband Gjon, seen in the photo with her, are at their fifties and are parents of four. For the past 5 years, they have been raising livestock in addition to the agriculture that they have been in for years now. Currently, they have 4,000 square meters of land where they plant corn and fodder and other seasonal veggies; they also have orchards such as oranges, plums, lemons, and persimmons. Added to the above, they have chickens and pigs.

Angje and their oldest child receive a disability income of $200/month, due to the same disability that they have. Even though, both of them support Gjon with the livestock and agricultural activity.

This is the first time that Angje is asking for a Kiva loan. She wants to support her husband to buy two cows from which they will be able to sell the raw milk and, in this way, make an income for their family.
