A loan of $950 helped to buy materials to build a stable for the pigs.


Artan's story

Artan is a 34-year-old married Egyptian Albanian and has two children. Artan has been operating his pig farming business with the help of his father for the past four years in the rural area of a major city where he and his family reside. “I just love what I do. With the climate in our region being cool in the summer, pigs won’t need any access to a wallow. They have a limited tolerance to high temperatures and heat stress which can lead them to death. Thus, my friendly animal nature combined with the proper climate, have made it possible for me to have success with this activity. And of course, with my father’s help as well,” Artan said smiling. He needs Kiva lenders’ help to build a stable for his pigs and he remains positive that they will help him financially.
