A loan of $1,375 helped to purchase a milk cow.

Feride's story

Feride is fifty-one years old. She is married and has two children with the youngest of two still attending university in a major city. Their family lives in the southeastern part of Albania.

Just like many other people in the region, she has animals and owns some land as well. She plants crops and veggies and of course some apple fruit trees which is very typical in this part of the country. For the past eight years, she has been selling milk to the local dairy farms. Feride says, “The profit is fine, yet not enough when you are the only provider at home and have children to educate.“

This is Feride’s second time applying for a loan to buy a cow. Yet this time is different, because she is requesting it from KIVA via VisionFund Albania and she is excited. She is known and respected by all the people in the village for her personable, responsible and loving nature.
