Liza is an experienced seamstress, particularly with northern traditional Albanian clothing and has been operating from her own home performing repair and alteration services for over 25 years. She is the only one in almost the entire region running such activity and the clientele is steady.
Liza is in her fifties and has two children; one of them is still attending a public university.
Liza is in need for a loan of approximately 1,850 US dollars to purchase fabric and knitted material. Being aware that her profile will be published on Kiva for financial support from lenders, she would like to thank all of the lenders in advance for their generosity and wish them Happy Holidays.

VisionFund Albania is a micro-finance subsidiary of child hunger nonprofit World Vision International. Striving to improve child welfare, the organization offers a variety of loan products designed for rural, traditionally underserved clients and their families. These products include agriculture, business and household improvement loans, as well as "integration loans" targeted to help the poorest, most vulnerable Albanian households acquire value chain resources.
While VFA is focused on the empowerment of the poor overall, it pays special attention to women. About 60% of loans to entrepreneurs on Kiva go to women.
