A loan helped to open a tourist and travel agency in the city of Elbasan, since Migel has more than ten years' experience as a guide for different agencies and is very famous.


Migel's story

Migel is a 27-year-old young man from Durres who now lives in Elbasan, Albania. "My father and stepmother live in Durres. I go to visit them often, but I don't feel comfortable in that house since my mother passed away. That is why I have chosen to live and work in another city," Migel explained.

Migel has more than ten years as a guide in Elbasan for different tourist and travel agencies. "I don't just tell the tourists about the city, I also sing and play games with them. I try to make their stay in Elbasan as enjoyable as possible!" said Migel proudly about his job. Indeed, he is one of the most requested guides in Elbasan.

Migel is asking for the first time for a Kiva loan to open a small tourist and travel agency in Elbasan since he has worked more than ten years as a guide for different agencies and knows how to deal with this kind of business.
