Pjeter is 48 years old and married. He has three children, two of whom are still attending school. The oldest child is 22 and the youngest 17 years old.
Pjeter has been running a dairy farm and animal sales business for 16 years so he has plenty of experience. This is his first time requesting a Kiva loan via VisionFund Albania. With this loan, he will purchase a cow with a calf, because he wants to expand his business since he has a steady clientele. With any profits, Pjeter will be able to save for reconstructing their current family house. Current VisionFund's Albania clients who have referred him to us comment on his responsible nature. Pjeter thanks potential lenders in advance for their support.
About VisionFund Albania
VisionFund Albania is a micro-finance subsidiary of child hunger nonprofit World Vision International. Striving to improve child welfare, the organization offers a variety of loan products designed for rural, traditionally underserved clients and their families. These products include agriculture, business and household improvement loans, as well as "integration loans" targeted to help the poorest, most vulnerable Albanian households acquire value chain resources.
While VFA is focused on the empowerment of the poor overall, it pays special attention to women. About 60% of loans to entrepreneurs on Kiva go to women.
