A loan helped to prepare the land for planting and to buy wheat seed in order to have a good harvest and a good income at the end of the season.


Maria's story

Maria is a 39-year-old rural woman. She lives with her elderly mother and her ill brother in a small village in Southern Albania.

To provide for her family, Maria does agricultural activities. She plants her family land with onions, beans, potatoes, wheat, and other vegetables. She is getting ready to plant the wheat, as it is the season, but needs Kiva lenders' support to prepare the land and to buy the seed and fertilizers in order to have a good harvest.

Maria is very thankful for this opportunity and thanks all Kiva lenders for their support.


This loan is special because:

It enables women living in rural areas to access credit tailored to their needs.
