Mirvete's story

A hardworking and friendly thirty-six-year-old, Mirvete is a very polite woman who tries to work hard. She has been operating a business as a seamstress for nearly 10 years, making traditional clothes and selling them to customers who custom order them, and also sometimes in the market to local customers.

Mirvete has a modest workshop in her home where she tends to all of her customers in a friendly and polite manner. Customers leave satisfied with the good work that she does. She likes her business as it allows her to demonstrate her creativity in each clothing item. She also likes that the income she makes from her work allows her to support her family. This is extremely helpful because her husband earns a small amount of money from his employment as a guard for a construction company. Together she and her husband have three children between the ages of two and eight, and they live together in an old house they own in a minority community in the southern part of Kosovo.

Mirvete has been sustaining her business through her own efforts all of these years, but now she is applying for a loan in the amount of 500 Euros. She will use this money to buy materials for her business such as fabric, elastic, buttons and more. She hopes to earn a higher income and to expand her business in the future. She is happy for the financial support from Kiva lenders because it helps her to secure a stable future for her family.
