Durim's story

Durim is a 42-year-old Romani man who lives in a major south central city of Albania. He is married with two school-aged children, and is a proud father because his children, unlike others in his community, go to school. Durim lived in Greece with his family for a long time and worked in trades like masonry. He has been back in his birth country for the past two years and continues to practice masonry. In addition, he has begun buying and selling new household items, which he has seen to be a very profitable activity.

Durim is requesting his first loan in the amount of 150,000 Albanian lek to buy inventory of new items such as drapes, blankets and sheets. He is confident that he will do well, because this is not a new business for him. The first thing Durim did when he started the interview for this loan description was to thank Kiva lenders and express his willingness to wait patiently for their help.
