A loan of $1,850 helped to build an irrigation system and buy supports for the vines.

Drande's story

Drande, this well-respected lady in her community, is in her fifties, is married and has one child. She has been working very hard these past 15 years in her business and has been the only one to support her family financially, she said. She thanks God for all the strength and the opportunity to provide for her family she has been given.

Drande’s activity has been mainly in agriculture and grape vines. She owns land where she’s been planting grains, potatoes, veggies and of course grape vines. During the last years, she has seen progress in the grape vine business because many locals and businesses in her region buy grapes to make wine.

Drande will start growing this business in the near future, yet, at the moment she is in need of 200,000 Albanian Lek to build an irrigation system and buy supports for the vines. This is the reason why she is requesting a loan through Kiva and hopes that lenders will show their generosity.
