Lumturi is a 49-year-old single woman living in a little town in northern Albania. For the last four years, she operated a profitable bar-restaurant, but because there was no banquet hall to accommodate people's social events, she decided to convert her restaurant into a hall.

Having just finished her renovations, Lumturi is now requesting a loan to stock up on inventory items. Her previous loan fully repaid, this will be her second loan with VisonFund Albania.
