Mimoza is married, is in her mid thirties and has two very young children. They all live in a little village in south-central Albania.

Mimoza has been involved in the livestock industry selling milk and other dairy products to locals for the past seven something years, and has also been operating a little grocery store in their neighborhood. Her husband has been helping her out as well, because he doesn’t have a job of his own.

Mimoza now wants to buy one more cow to increase the dairy production and this is why she is requesting a Kiva loan this time. She hopes that she will receive some financial help from lenders and she is thankful to all of them.
