A loan of $1,850 helped to rebuild a damaged animal stable.


Astor's story

Astor wants to rebuild an animal stable with this loan and he is already thrilled by the fact that has been selected as a beneficiary of the Value Chain Projects, a collaboration effort between World Vision Albania, VisionFund Albania and Kiva.

"I had applied for loans to almost all financial institutions, but they had rejected me due to the lack of collateral and/or income," is what he said to the loan officer who interviewed him.

Astor is 35 and married. He has three children whose ages range between eight and two. They live in a village in the southeastern part of the country where the lives of the residents are not easy at all. The winters are extremely cold and snowy and their plants most of the times are damaged by severe snowstorms and frosts..
