A loan of $1,425 helped to make major repairing to his animals' existing stable.


Martin's story

Martin is a married father of four children who range in age from 12 to 18. He lives with his family in northeast Albania.

For more than 10 years, Martin has been involved in the animal husbandry business, and has managed to nurture this activity throughout the years. He sells milk and little calves to locals.

Even so, his is the only income in the family, but it hasn't been bad after all, says Martin. “It’s hard work, no doubt about it, yet it can turn out to be profitable if there are no natural disasters such as heavy snow and flooding that hits the region sometimes and cause the unfortunate death of animals,” Martin continued saying.

He applied for a loan recently through VisionFund Albania to make some major repairs to his existing animal stable, and hopes that Kiva lenders will help him financially through their lending.
