Xhevaire, a married mother of four, has been photographed with her daughter Lindita who is receiving treatment for her illness at the moment.
Lindita’s husband passed away sometime back, and she was left to take care of their 9-year-old child. Soon after she was diagnosed with a severe illness; thus, she moved in with her parents.
Xhevaire is seeking this loan to pay for Lindita’s surgery. She has needed two so far and has been scheduled for another one very soon. Kindly note that your compassion and financial help will be very much appreciated by both.
She does agriculture; she has figs and plum orchards and also grapevines. The rest of the agricultural land that she owns, she has rented out to others.
This will be her second loan with VisionFund Albania.
