A loan of $1,800 helped to buy a cow with a calf.

Iljet's story

Iljet is in her sixties, married, with three married sons with children of their own. She and her husband live a quiet life on the city’s outskirts. All of their children with their families live in Greece. For over seven years, Iljet has had a cow for milk and a horse to pull the plow. The cow she currently has is getting old now and she is requesting a loan to buy a cow with its calf to supply milk for one of her sons and his family who are returning home, now that the economy is proving to have challenges in Greece.

In the past she has borrowed twice from VisionFund Albania, however, she has successfully repaid the loans in full. She says, “I have worries when I owe and I can’t sleep well until the installment day comes to pay my portion. I feel relieved afterwards.”

She thanks all KIVA lenders in advance.
