A loan of $1,350 helped to buy a used vehicle.


Aleksander's story

Aleksander is a 27-year-old Romani man from the vulnerable communities of Albania. He is married and has four children, all very. He has been the only one to financially support not only his immediate family, but also his parents, who are sick, and his sister’s education, also. He has had to work very hard to provide for all.

Aleksander has worked at a car wash station during the day for the past five years. In the evenings, he has been distributing merchandise in the villages around the city for almost a year now.

The old vehicle that he used to deliver the merchandise required service all the time, and it cost him so much to repair. Now he is planning to buy a cheap used vehicle, yet in a better condition than the one he currently owes.

He wants to grow his business to employ his younger brothers as well. When he learned that he could request a KIVA loan via VisionFund Albania, Aleksander became extremely happy.
