Eduart is 34 years old and married, with two children; five and three years old. The family lives in the central eastern part of Albania. Eduart is known by others for being a hard-worker and a responsible man.

For the past eight years, Eduart has owned his dairy farm. He sells milk and dairy products to the local market. To bring them there, which he usually does every day, he often takes the bus.

Now, he is planning to purchase a motorcycle, though, to make it easier. For this, Eduart is requesting a KIVA loan via VisionFund Albania. It will be his second loan, with the previous one being paid off.

Eduart believes he will be able to sell more if he used a motorcycle to transport his products. This will increase the profit, which he plans to use to build a dairy farm and also educate his children.
