Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Zoje's story

Zoje is 46 years old and is married to her husband who was born legally blind. Together they have three children; two of them still attend high school.

Their family lives in the north-west part of Albania. While her husband has been receiving a very small amount of disability assistance, she has been taking care of her family and dairy cows at the same time. "This has been going on for 14 years now and I’ve gotten used to it. The first few years, it was extremely difficult because our children were very young and all in my family needed my care: husband, children and animals,” Zoje said laughing.

Zoje is now requesting a loan to expand the existing animal stable.
