A loan of $1,400 helped to buy used clothes and other used items for resale.

Ermira's story

Ermira, resident of a main city in central Albania, is an Egyptian woman from a vulnerable ethnic minority community. She is a 42-year-old mother of four dependent children who are still attending public school. She has been selling used clothes and other used items and accessories as a main income source for twelve years. She earns enough from her business, according to her, to feed her children.

With a lack of money for her business at the moment, Ermira is applying for her first loan with VisionFund Albania. She will use this loan to purchase used items to sell to better support her family and set aside some money for the future renovation of their small family house.

Being aware that her information will be published on Kiva’s website for lenders’ support, Ermira is thanking them in advance.
