Burbuqe's story

Burbuqe is a 34-year-old divorced mother of two children; 16 and 14. They are members of the vulnerable ethnic Egyptians and they live in the outskirts of a main city in central Albania that is inhabited only by ethnics. They live under very poor conditions and Burbuqe is one of them; the photograph of her says it all about their community’s living conditions including hygiene and nutrition. Some members have done well during these past twenty years and have moved out of their community, while others are stilll struggling in almost all areas. Burbuqe works as a janitor in a hospital. She wants to do some home repairing with this loan that will be her first one. She is asking for your compassion and generosity.
