Marjana's story

Marjana is a 37-year-old mother of four children, ranging from eleven to one year old. Only two of them attending school. She lives with her husband and children in the north west part of Albania. Marjana has been selling milk and baby cows to the local market of a northern small town of approximately 10,000 inhabitants for the past six years and has been generating a somewhat good income. Animal husbandry is a preferred activity throughout northern Albania and has proven to be one of the main means of income for the northern rural areas. Marjana wants to buy a dairy cow at the moment, and is requesting a loan from KIVA via VisionFund Albania. With the holidays approaching, she wants to say “Happy Holidays” to all Kiva lenders.
