Marlind's story

Marlind is 34 years old and married. Not long ago, his father passed away and he had been grieving ever since. However, the birth of his little girl just three weeks ago has filled him with some joy and lifted his spirits a bit.

Marlind has been in the livestock industry for the past three years, selling milk to a dairy farm in a neighboring village. According to Marlind, the business has been going well. He is now planning to take advantage of the reduced price for a cow that his neighbor, who is going to Italy soon, is selling.

Marlind feels that he has to grow his business because he is the only one financially supporting his mother, wife, and child. He is convinced that he cannot do this without the support of Kiva lenders. His promise to lenders is that he will pay back the loan on time and in full.
