A loan of $1,000 helped to buy sheep to her herd.

Manushaqe's story

Manushaqe is in her early fifties. She is married and has two school-aged children.

“I have been working very hard as a janitor in the public school here in my village, planting in my land and selling veggies and potatoes, and also looking after my animals, particularly cows and selling milk to residents of a little town close by, yet, after all my efforts and hard labor, I am still very poor. Look where I live…,” she said showing us her little one-room house.

“I must improve our living conditions and for this I’ve decided to add some sheep to my herd. All I need to achieve this is an amount of 100,000 Albanian Lek. Hopefully, lenders at Kiva will help me out by lending this amount,” Manushaqe added.
