Vladimir's story

Vladimir is a 55-year-old married man and the father of two children, 19 and 14 years old; they all live in the city of Korce, in the southeastern part of Albania. He is requesting from Kiva lenders a loan of 250,000 ALL to send his son, Jonel, to a public university. Jonel is going to study Economics; he’s been photographed next to his father. Kindly note that the majority of youngsters here in Albania study Economics because they think that they will have more opportunities to find a job with this degree. Only a few young people consider studying professions/trades in the construction field. In recent years, fewer and fewer young man have been doing any types of trades. While Vladimir works for pay, his wife works as a maid for a family not far from where they live (looking after the elders, cleaning up and cooking).
