300,000 Albanian Lek (ALL) would be of help to this ethnic Egyptian Albanian lady, Atman, who lives in a major city in the southeastern part of Albania.
Atman is in her early sixties and people who have known her have commented on her hard-working and ambitious traits. “She is a very lovely lady and she works so hard, even at her age, to provide for her husband and herself. I remember her, offering the services of seamstress and general alterations for some years now, and literally, she’s been trying to accommodate all of us who are in need of her services. She is a very nice lady.” said someone in her neighborhood.
Atman wants to buy a vehicle with this loan to offer services to clients at their own location.
