This is Rexhep being photographed inside his rundown family house; he wants to repair it with your financial help through the loan that he is requesting from Kiva lenders. He is a married father of two teen-aged children.

Rexhep is a farmer who works for pay; in addition to this income, he sells red wine and the "raki" drink (made from his grapes) to locals and also sells raw milk and homemade 0-0.5 % low fat cottage cheese.

Rexhep’s co-villagers plant in quantities rye, oats, onions, corn, and garlic. They then sell the products to the wholesale buyers. Corn bread and stuffed peppers with cottage cheese are the most used ones amongst the villagers.

About VisionFund Albania

VisionFund Albania is a micro-finance subsidiary of child hunger nonprofit World Vision International. Striving to improve child welfare, the organization offers a variety of loan products designed for rural, traditionally underserved clients and their families. These products include agriculture, business and household improvement loans, as well as "integration loans" targeted to help the poorest, most vulnerable Albanian households acquire value chain resources.

While VFA is focused on the empowerment of the poor overall, it pays special attention to women. About 60% of loans to entrepreneurs on Kiva go to women.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
