A loan of $1,400 helped to renovate the inside of an old bar-cafe.

Artur's story

Artur is fifty one, married and has two children who are presently attending school. They all live in the south of Albania. Artur has been a sole financial provider for his family of 4, for almost 12 years. Since they live in the city, there is a scarcity of jobs, which is why his wife hasn’t found any job, even though she is educated.

Feeling financially strapped for some time, Artur decided to open a bar-café three years ago. An initial loan helped him start this business. Then, he applied for more loans to buy inventory and other necessary items for the cafe. Kindly note, that he has been very good at paying all the previous loans.

Artur is now applying for another loan to renovate the inside of the bar-cafe. He hopes that Kiva lenders will show their kindness and lend to him.
