A loan of $950 helped to buy feed for her livestock.


Merita's story

Merita, 33, is married and educated, yet despite her education, she hasn’t been able to find a job in her field. As such, she has been working in the agriculture industry for about 10 years now. She lives with her husband and looks after her brother who suffers from serious illness and lives with them. They live in a rural village in the central eastern part of the country where the economy lately has improved thanks to agriculture and livestock. Merita works long hours every day of the week in animal husbandry. At times she feels exhausted ”yet, I feel I’ve got no other choices,” she explains. Earlier in the month of September, Merita approached VisionFund Albania to request a loan to buy feed for her livestock. She has requested loans from the same institution and repaid them on time. Merita hopes to get support from lenders at Kiva.
