A loan of $975 helped to buy a milk cow.

Dila's story

Dila wants to buy a cow and sell the milk and baby calves to the locals. She has never requested any loans until recently when she was contacted by the field staff who work out of her area about the eligibility of a startup loan. She was really thrilled and, immediately with staff’s help, she put the application forward to Kiva.

Dila is 54 and has three children who are still attending school. Rural northern Albania is the part of the country where they reside. “I pray that lenders will help me financially. I want to save for my kids’ education, as they want to earn higher education. So I see this opportunity as an activity to thrive in the livestock and why not? Others in our region, have already.” She ended her conversation smiling all the time.
