These are loans that go mainly to the self-employed, the farmer, the craftsman or the mechanic, the plumber or the retailer of your small shop. Microfinance serves those individuals who have embraced honest work and free entrepreneurship as their lifestyle. Let's not forget that out of 150,000 active businesses in Albania, over 95% of them employ fewer than four people.
Albanian microfinance is looking to finance a development that is also social; where the work and sacrifices of Albanian farmers and entrepreneurs is worthily rewarded; where the environment they live in is healthy and with adequate infrastructures; where the surrounding community feels that it also benefits from the economy and the natural resources that surround them.
Microfinance seeks to be a promoter not only of the honest work of farmers and small entrepreneurs, but of communities that create, through solidarity, a shared and lasting added-value. An added value, that results from the co-operation and co-ordination of economic activities throughout all the national production chain. Until yesterday, we supported farmers and small entrepreneurs taken individually. Today, together with your help, it is time to support the consolidation of manufacturing sectors that bring a shared development to our communities.
Financing a development that is also social, is our ambition for the future.
