Andrea's story

Andrea is a married father of two. He has been photographed in his home yard. The two rows covered with waterproof material are called "warm beds" among villagers in Albania. This is where the seeds are thrown first during cold months in order to become seedlings, and then they are planted outside when the weather gets better.

Agriculture/livestock is the only means of living for Andrea’s family. The loan that he is requesting from Kiva lenders will be used to prepare the soil and buy fertilizers and seeds for planting. Andrea has one dairy cow that produces more than 15 kg milk per day; he uses some of it for the family and sells the rest. Andrea also plants wheat, corn, sage, and animal fodder in large quantities.
