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

A loan helped a young boy to stock on inventory of used furniture his selling-used-furniture store so he will continue to make an income for his family.

Xhulio's story

Xhulio is a young entrepreneur from Lushnja city. He got the idea of opening a used furniture store in his city when he was traveling, for emigration purposes, for the first time. "I saw a van full of old but very beautiful furniture when I was at the harbor. I asked the man responsible and he was very keen to teach me all the needed trick to start a small activity," said Xhulio during the interview. During the pandemic period this has been one of the businesses that got mostly affected so he has been having difficulties to save enough to restock inventory. Xhulio hopes to have Kiva lenders support to stock inventory of used furniture so he will continue to make an income for his family.

Xhulio lives only with his elderly mother and his younger brother in a small house. "Both of them help me as much as they can, when I need their support," said Xhulio during the interview.
