Manjola's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay for scrap metal and plastic to resell.
Manjola is an Egyptian Albanian and is photographed here with her husband, Naim. Manjola is 28 and together they have two children, 7 and 5. The older of the two was supposed to attend public school, yet they claim that is very difficult due to their lack of an adequate income. They live in a town of approximately 10,000 residents in northern Albania. Manjola and Naim collect and sell scrap metal and plastic and they have been doing this activity for almost five years. The factory complex that they sell to is not far from their town; thus, they consider themselves lucky that they don’t waste fuel for the transportation vehicle seen here in the photo. The loan that Manjola is requesting now will be used to pay for the scrap.
