Laura's story

Laura is a 19-year-old young girl from a village in south Albania. Her family is very poor but she really wants to continue her education, as she thinks this would be the best way toward a better future, not only for her but also for her family. Laura is asking for the first time for a loan and she really hopes to have your support to pay for her first university yearly fee so she will be able to attend university and have higher chances for a better future.

Laura lives with her parents and her three siblings. Her parents are engaged in agricultural activities and she plans to start working in a call-centre in Korca city when she starts at the university, so she will be bale to pay the loan instalments and other daily expenses.

She really hopes for your support so she can have higher chances for a better future.
