Viktor
Viktor, a married father of three young children, lives in rural central Albania. Like so many other rural residents, he is involved in the agricultural sector.


"Agriculture is all about hard labor and passion as well, that’s all. Yet sometimes, even if we don’t have passion for something, we have no other choice but to just do it. To add to the benefits of agricultural activities, keeping fit and healthy is very important,” Viktor said, laughing.


Viktor is requesting your help to buy a dairy cow.
