Shpresa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to help a member of vulnerable the Roma population provide a safe and warm shelter for her family.

Shpresa's story

Meet Shpresa, a 54 year old woman who is a member of the vulnerable Roma population in Korca. Shpresa is married and mother of two adult sons who have both emigrated to Greece in order to have better paid jobs than they can find or have in Albania.

Shpresa lives with her husband in a very old flat in a village outside of Korca. Her apartment urgently needs some basic repairs. The apartment is currently just one room, so she needs to build walls to separate the kitchen space from the living space and the bedroom space. She also needs to buy some basic household appliances in order to keep their space clean and liveable. She also needs to cover the floor with parquet so her house will be warmer during the freezing cold days of Korça's winter. She hopes that with your support she will be able to use this loan to renovate their very old flat and have better living conditions.
