A loan of $550 helped to repair the stable.

Marte's story

Marte is married and has two children in their twenties, and all of them reside in a rocky village of the mountain region of northern Albania, an area consistently poorer than the rest of the country according to all definitions of poverty. Marte is extremely poor; despite her efforts to make a better life, she and her family are still struggling.

For the past ten years Marte has owned two milking cows. Like so many other farmers in this region who sell in the city, every morning Marte arises very early, pays for transportation and sells milk in the city’s streets to earn a profit of not more than $5.

She is now requesting a loan to repair her stable. Knowing that this is a Kiva loan, she wants to thank all lenders and ensure them that she will repay on time.
