Esmeralda's story

Esmeralda is seen with her husband and their one-year-old child in the photo. She is the happy mother of three children between one and nine years old and lives with her family and her husband's parents in the southeastern part of Albania. The family is big, and so are its needs; therefore, Esmeralda and her husband work hard to earn and fulfill the family's needs. They own 10 dynyms (10,000 square meters) of agricultural land where they plant beans and cabbages.

The earnings from these crops are very small, and Esmeralda and her husband have to take on additional work. Esmeralda works in an orchard, and her husband as a night man. Her parents-in-law help Esmeralda while she works by taking care of their grandchildren.

Esmeralda need the loan to repair the roofing of the house. It was damaged during the snowy winter.
