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

A loan helped to pay for a specialised medical treatment for his leg in North Macedonia so he will recover his health and will be able to walk normally.

Gezim's story

Gezim, a 47-year-old man, lives with his wife and their son. They have come in from a mountain area, in the north of Albania. They don't have any land, so they have to work for others to make their living. Gezim works as a labourer in a stone quarry, while his wife works in a nearby poultry farm. Gezim rides his bicycle for three miles to go to his work place every day, in summer and in winter. "During the freezing cold of January, I slid badly when I was going to work and injured my leg. At the beginning I did not think that it was something bad, maybe because of the cold I did not feel the pain. After I got home, I saw my leg all black and I could not feel anything when I touched it. According to the doctors in Korca city I need to take specialised medical care in a hospital in North Macedonia, so I will recover my health and I will be able to walk normally in the future!" said Gezim during the interview.

Gezim wishes happy International Women's Day to all women around the world.
