Dallendyshe is a 48-year-old Egyptian and grandmother of two children whom she just adores; she chose to be photographed at her home with one of her grandchildren instead of at her business activity. The family lives in a major city in southeastern Albania.

Dallendyshe has been buying and selling secondhand clothing and other items in the city’s market for the past six years. “As for the profit, it hasn’t been that bad,” she says. “I have been feeding all my family with this income,” she continued.

Dallendyshe is requesting a loan of approximately $2,350 to buy more secondhand items and resell them. She hopes that she will get the financial support she seeks from Kiva lenders. Please note that Dallendyshe has been a VFA client for a long time has proven to be very responsible.
