“This is for good luck. The very first thing I do is that I pray when I need something, and then I start believing that whatever I prayed for is mine. And then, I literally work very hard toward it,” he said. “So, these are the steps I want to take for this one as well. A transportation vehicle will give me the opportunity to do what I love and make a good income out of it,” Bashkim continued.
Bashkim lives in the rural central Albania and is planning to start up his transportation business and get married soon.
