Xhevair
Xhevair is an Egyptian man in his 60s and has been photographed with his wife Sanie for this profile. They are very poor and they live in the outskirts of a little town in southern Albania where they manage livestock as the main source of income for their family.

They started their dairy/livestock activity some six years back and have been selling milk to the local dairy farm ever since. Through this activity, they have been able to cover their basic living expenses; yet they couldn’t put any money aside to build a stable for their animals. This is the reason that they are applying for a loan for the first time.
