A loan of $950 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Vitore's story

Vitore is requesting a loan of 100,000 Albanian Lek (ALL) for the first time to add one more dairy cow to her existing herd. Being told from the Loan Officer (LO) that her profile will be published on Kiva for lender support made her even more excited.

She is 41 years old, married and has four school-aged children whose ages range from 17 to 12. All of them live in northern Albania. For the past 18 years, she has had an agriculture/livestock business and has been running it with the help of her husband. “In our region, these are activities that we engage in as couples, because it is very difficult to be handled by one person only,” Vitore said.

Vitore has been selling milk cow to locals and dairy farms and planting fodder for her animals.
