Hatixhe's story

A rural villager located in the south-central Albania, Hatixhe is a 60 year-old mother of six children. Some of her children are still dependent and go to school. She has been farming on her farmland and planting potatoes & grains and practicing animal husbandry as the main income source for long time now. With her current business, Hatixhe earns US$4 per day and is able to save US$2 daily. In addition to all this, she has been looking after her husband who has been paralyzed for almost ten years.

With a lack of money for her business, Hatixhe is applying for her second loan with VisionFund Albania. She will use this loan to replace the roofing of their house. The roof currently leaks and rain water is getting inside.

This loan will be a great help to their family and Hatixhe and her husband thank all lenders at Kiva.
