A loan of $925 helped to buy electrical appliances for her kitchen.


Liljana's story

Liljana, 34, is married and has one child. Her husband, who immigrated long ago to a neighboring country, helped her financially in the beginning, but later stopped coming back. Therefore, she no longer gets any help from him.

She lives in a little town in northern Albania, where she works full time in a restaurant. She also works in the farming industry, both with livestock and agriculture. The money she makes is enough for her and her son to live on, and she can even save a bit to improve their living conditions. Recently, she wanted to buy some electrical appliances. She thought that she would be able to pay for them in installments, yet she was told that she had to pay the full amount at the time of purchase.

This is why Liljana is requesting a Kiva loan now. She hopes that the lenders will help her. This would be her third loan from the same institution to which she has proved her responsibility in the past.
