A loan of $1,875 helped to build an irrigation system for her vineyard.


Etleva's story

Etleva is 35 years old and married with two children who are 14 and 9 years old. She is from a small village in northeastern Albania. Her main economic activity for the past five years has been looking after a vineyard full-time. She completes all the relevant seasonal work to insure a good harvest. The harvested produce is sold to store owners and other local customers who purchase grapes to make a special traditional drink called “raki” as well as wine. Etleva works hard to maintain some savings and expand her agricultural business. She has requested a loan of 200,000 ALL from VisionFund Albania in order to build an irrigation system. This investment will increase grape production as well as her income. Etleva plans to reinvest in her vineyard to expand it and make it more profitable. With the increased profit, Etleva will improve her family’s living conditions. She waits for your help and kindness.
