Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $2,825 helped to build a new stable before winter kicks in.

Dila's story

Dila, who is in her early 50s, is a married parent of six children. She has been working very hard to support her family. Five of her children are in their 20s and one of them still attends school. The family lived in another northern municipality that is more rural and where they experienced many difficulties prior to moving to their current location. She has a livestock business that has been going very well, especially the past seven years. She has been selling milk and animals and has been making a good profit. Dila is borrowing 300,000 LEK through VisionFund Albania to build a new stable.

Dila has been sustaining her business activities through the past 20 years and this is only her second time requesting a loan. Dila hopes that with lenders' support, she will be able to build the stable before winter kicks in.
