A loan of $1,425 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Zoje's story

Zoje is 60 years old and is married, yet she doesn’t have any children. She lives in northern Albania. The village where she has been residing for a long time now gets slammed by lots of rains almost every year. Despite the flooding, she manages to keep milk cows. From the milk the cows produce, she makes delicious and good quality butter, cheese, and cottage cheese that she sells to the locals. Throughout the past 10 years she has been enjoying a steady growth that makes her happy. Zoje wants to add another dairy cow this time and is applying for a loan from Kiva through VisionFund Albania. The amount she is requesting is 150,000 Albanian Lek and she hopes that she will be getting this amount from lenders. This will be her third loan. Her other loans have been paid in full.
