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

A loan helped a member from the vulnerable Egyptian community to purchase some equipment which will enable him to offer a better service to his clients.

Lulëzim's story

Lulëzim is a 29-year-old member from the vulnerable Egyptian community, who lives with his elderly father and younger brother in Pogradec city. His mother passed away some years ago, and since then it is Lulëzim who takes care of his elderly father and his younger brother. At the same time, Lulëzim is the only provider in his family. He offers different construction services in his city and nearby villages to make an income. His brother has started to help him and for this Lulëzim gives him a small salary.

"I need to buy some equipment which will enable me to offer my clients a better service, like a tile cutter and a painting pump, but I do not have enough savings for them. For this I hope in your support to be able to purchase this equipment!"-said Lulëzim during the interview.
