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

A loan helped to buy food for the piglets.

Hamit's story

Hamit, a vulnerable ethnic Egyptian Albanian who is a very long time client of VFA and has excellent standards, wants to buy food for the pigs and piglets. Currently he's got four sows and a pig including piglets. He receives a monthly retirement pension of $54 whereas his wife gets about $59.

However, they work hard and from the pigs they earn an annual gross income of about $7000 with the expenses (food for the animals) of this activity being $1100 without including here the labour work and other veterinary expenses if needed.

Kindly note that Hamit's family falls below the national poverty level.
