Agim is sixty one years old, married and have two grown children. His family lives in Albania.

Agim has been operating a livestock business for the past ten years. An animal lover, Agim has cows and sells milk to dairy farms in the region. Dairy farmers come and pick up the milk from his home and this makes it easier and cheaper for him.

This business is going well and Agim loves it too. Recently he has been thinking of growing the business; and when VFA contacted him one day asking him if he wanted to apply for a Kiva loan, he did.

Agim wants to buy a cow and in the future, with the profit from the business, build a little stable for his animals, so they don’t have to sleep outside during cold winters.
