A loan of $925 helped to buy a milk cow.


Anila's story

Anila is in the mid forties and married. She is a mother of two and lives in south east Albania. Her primary source of income for the last 6 years has been raising livestock. This activity suits her caring and animal lover personality and is profitable enough to make her a living as well.



Currently, Anila has three cows and has been selling cheese and butter to locals. The cheese she makes in not very salty and not very greasy either, because she takes way the fat before she makes it. Anila has a very steady clientele and many people in the region, who suffer from diabetes, prefer her cheese because it is homemade and low-fat.



Anila would like to add some more cows to her livestock with the loan she is requesting from Kiva. She wants to thank all of the lenders. This is not Anila’s first loan. It’s the fifth one, and all the previous loans have been repaid.
