Gjystina's story

Gjystina is 39 years old with five children, all of whom are going to school. They live in northern Albania and Gjystina’s activity for the last seven years has been livestock. She has been selling milk to local dairy farms and baby calves to locals ever since. She has been able to build a good and steady clientele that has helped her earn an income for her family. Gjystina has plans to educate all of her children, but before that happens, she needs to increase the size of her house. The house they live in is too small and all of them, parents and children, sleep in the one room-house. She is requesting a Kiva loan and the lenders appreciation of this matter. Kiva lenders' contribution will be a tremendous help to her and her family and she is very grateful. Note that Gjystina applied for another loan in the past and repaid it.
