Kristi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to prepare the land for planting cyani flowers and do other things that this flower might require.
Kristi is 28 years old and recently married; he lives in southeastern Albania with his wife and his elderly father because his mother passed away this past year. He wants to start planting and selling cyani flowers (cornflowers), which are very beautiful seen in the field, with intense blue colour and blue pigments. They are used as a decaffeinated herbal tea. Some years back planting, selling and exporting this particular plant was a project implemented by EuroPartners Development in the Korca region, where Kristi lives, and the Chamber of Grevena. Until recently, Kristi bought and sold fruits and vegetables and also worked in a nearby hotel as a waiter. The reason why he is requesting this loan is to prepare the land for planting the cyani flowers and to do other things this flower might require.
