A loan of $2,875 helped to buy inventory items for distribution to stores.


Anton's story

Anton lives with his four children and his wife in a village in the northern part of Albania. He has been running a wholesale distribution type of activity for seven years. He buys mostly vegetables, grains and fruits in nearby villages and sells them to stores.

“I have been able to establish a good clientele who I can sell to. As for buying the items, it’s not really a headache because villagers have plenty of produce and they can’t wait to sell it. What I found difficult in the beginning was to find buyers, because there were so many others like me who approached them,” said Anton.

Anton is requesting this loan to buy inventory items to sell.
