A loan of $925 helped to buy two sows (female pigs).


Davide's story

Davide, who arrived in her current region from another part of Northern Albania some years ago, is a mother of six children ranging from 11 to 26 years of age. Four of them are still attending school with one of them studying in university; another one is in high school and the other two still in elementary school. She and her family were challenged at first in the new location, however, thanks to VisionFund Albania loans and their hard work, their living condition improved.

Davide's business of over four years has included raising and selling piglets on the local market. At the moment, she still has a sow (female pig) however, it's growing older and its productivity has decreased. This is the reason why Davide wants to invest on two more sows. Her business has been successful so far and with its profit she was able to pay off the two previous loans, raise her children and make some basic renovations to her home.

Now, her plans include expansion of the business and sending the other three children to university.
