A loan helped to buy two dairy cows.

Dilore's story

Dilore is 55 years old and a married mother of two grown-ups. About a year ago, she started a sort of agricultural activity. Her yard is about 300 square meters, thus, she had to rent about 6000 more meters to plant animal feed such as vetch, lucerne and fodder. So far, she's got chickens and two sows with piglets, and now Dilore wants to add two dairy cows to sell raw milk and also homemade dairy products, and to sell calves also. Doing this, her family's income will improve great deal, according to Dilore.

Prior to their current location, she and her husband lived far off in the Albanian Alps where life was pretty harsh, with 10 months of winter a year and the ground covered in snow almost all year around with no technology and infrastructure. "Life here is much better, however, we will have no retirement pensions, thus, we've got to do something. Until now, our sons who live in Italy have been helping financially if we needed some money for medications. But we have to cover for them ourselves, " said Dilore to the branch assistant who took her Kiva interview.
