Lindita is skilled at making embroideries and she loves it, as per her say :) She is a member of the vulnerable ethnic minority of Egyptian Albanians. She is a widowed mother of two children in their early 20s. She is in her early 40s. “Life turned out to be very tough on me and my children, with my husband passing away long ago. He was my support in everything and afterwards, I found myself not knowing what to do, unfortunately. And this is when my desire to handcraft came as a sort of revelation or out of my grief and desperation. Since then, I have been making such items and selling them to some Greek company. Not bad at all,” she ended.

Lindita is now requesting a loan to buy material for her craft embroideries.
