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

A loan helped to plant part of his land with grapes so he will be able to make wine and a traditional beverage for selling.

Gjergj's story

Gjergj is a typical north Albanian man. He is a man of honour, whose duty in life is to provide for his family so they won't miss anything. Thanks to 4 previous loans in ASF, which he has repaid totally on time, he has repaired significantly his family shelter. Now he wants to plant grapes at part of his land so his family will have their own vineyard from which they will be able to make wine and "raki" - a traditional Albanian beverage, for selling. He believes that this will be the best heritage that he can leave for his children.

Gjergj lives with his wife, his son and his family at the same house. According to north Albania's tradition the youngest son must stay and live with his parents. Gjergj and his wife practice agricultural activities, while their son works in construction field. His bride takes care of the house and their children.

Gjergji thanks you all for the opportunity given to him and invites you all to come and see his vineyard in a few years.
