A loan of $1,850 helped to buy iron metal sheets for her husband's welding business.


Vasilika's story

Vasilika is requesting a loan for Arben, her husband, who is shown in this photograph with her. The loan that they request is an amount of 200,000 Albanian Lek. They will use it to buy iron metal sheets for his welding business. This will be their fifth loan from the same institution, with the previous ones being paid off.

For the past 10 years, he has been practicing welding skills in the surrounding villages and has been generating a good income. Comments from people in their village: “He is very artistic and the railings he makes are so beautiful." "He is a very good person to deal with.”

Vasilika and Arben appreciate very much what lenders at Kiva do for people in need around the world.
