Orgit is 28 and married with two children, ages one and two. He and his family are Egyptians. Until four years ago, Orgit lived in Greece and worked in construction. He has since he has returned to his homeland, which is a major city in central Albania. Orgit continues to work in construction yet it is not a steady job; it’s kind of on-call because of the economic situation. To increase his income, he started buying and selling used clothes in the market. Orgit is sole financial provider for his family.

Orgit is requesting a 100,000 ALL loan from Kiva lenders to buy more used clothing to sell. This will be his first loan, and Orgit assures everyone that, based on his responsible character, he will repay his loan on time.
