Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $1,875 helped to buy a milk cow and fodder.

Fine's story

Fine was recently approved for an integrated project loan in the amount of 200,000 Albanian Lek, which she will be using to purchase a dairy cow and fodder along with it. “I have already four cows and I wanted to add another one to the herd to increase production, yet I could not afford it. Being one of the beneficiaries of such projects, it makes me feel good in a way and will give me the opportunity to fulfill my wish,” she said.

Fine is in her late 50s and lives in rural south central Albania with her family, which includes her husband and two children. Just like the majority of people who live in rural areas and find it easy to run a small agriculture/livestock business, she has been on the same path as well for almost four years. Her clients are the locals of a major city not far from where she lives.

Fine is very appreciative to WVA, VFA and Kiva lenders.
