A loan of $1,400 helped to purchase a milking cow.


Jelina's story

Jelina a villager in her mid-fifties who lives in rural central Albania. She is married and has three children who are in their twenties and are attending school. For the past twenty years, Jelina has been working in a small agricultural business that has generated enough income to meet her family’s day to day needs. She sells fresh produce in the city like a majority of residents from her village. They go down to the city every day and start selling from 6am to 2pm. To increase her income, Jelina now wants to add one milking cow.

Jelina has never before applied for a loan because she knew that without collateral it would be almost impossible to obtain one. Yet things changed recently: when the WVA and VFA launched the Integrated Loan Projects in her region, she was one of the beneficiaries selected to take advantage of such a loan.
