Kiva Lending Team: Supporters of VisionFund Albania
We loan because...
We support the fantastic work that VisionFund Albania is doing to empower Albanians to lift themselves out of poverty.
VisionFund Albania (VFA) has been a field partner of Kiva since mid-2012, and is owned by VisionFund International.
VFA has a unique social mission in Albania - helping individuals and families empower themselves financially. VFA also serves communities in parts of Albania where there is a direct and urgent need to improve living conditions and help the poorest and most vulnerable. In addition, VFA aims to support women and the many minority groups.
VFA works to provide holistic services to the poor in Albania, aiming to attain an impact financially as well as socially. It is the only organisation in the country to do so at present.
