A loan of $450 helped to buy clothing inventory.

Vitore's story

Vitore is in her mid-fifties. She is married and has three children whose ages range from 21 to 9 years old. Her oldest child goes to university and the others attend primary and secondary school. Vitore's husband has been paralyzed for a long time and she has been the only financial provider for her family. Vitore says, “The fact that I have been the only one to do everything around home and be the main financial supporter for my family has made it very difficult for me and I can’t hide this. Yet, I feel proud of my hard work and my accomplishments as well. The hardest task for me was to raise the children almost on my own. However, it has been a privilege from God.”

Vitore’s family lives on the outskirts of a little city. For the past nine years, Vitore has owned a store where she has been selling clothes. The business has been doing all right and the clientele is growing. Vitore is applying for the first time for a Kiva loan via VisionFund Albania to purchase more inventory items and she is seeking a positive reception from Kiva lenders. She will use any profits to save for her children’s education.
