A loan of $1,425 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Merita's story

Merita wants to buy a dairy cow with the loan of 150,000 Albanian Lek that she is requesting from Kiva lenders.

Merita lives in southeastern Albania. Livestock is the activity that she’s been in for about six years now, with her clientele growing the last couple of years. She is a 37-year-old married lady and has 11-year-old twins . “Livestock is something that the majority of us in the villages enjoy doing. It’s not that it is easy, but we got no other choices anyhow. My husband helps me and I very much appreciate it.” We secure our dairy and meat, and we sell to the local market in a little nearby town to generate an income, Merita went on to say.
