A loan of $650 helped to buy housewares and clothing to resell.


Gjergji's story

A loan of 70,000 Albanian Lek (ALL) would be of great help for this Egyptian Albanian who lives in a village in south-central Albania. Gergji, who is in his early thirties, is married and has two young children. He sells items including clothes, home decorations and housewares/kitchenware, etc., at the market and he is happy so far with the progress of his activity and the income.

“I started the buying/selling activity of new items almost three years ago, and I have been doing very well. Clients like my items, and they buy them, and I am very grateful,” Gjergji said. “I need to buy some more items to resell with this loan and since I have been told that my profile will be published on Kiva, I hope lenders will help me,” Gjergji ended.

Kindly note that Gjergji has been photographed here with some of the items he resells.
