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

A loan helped to buy a minivan to transport mostly school children and teachers, and travelers during the summer or weekends.

Esad's story

Esad chose to be photographed next to a mini-van that he wants to buy with your financial help. Esad is 55 and a married father of two, a 10-year-old and an 8-year-old, and they live in a village in southeastern Albania. So far, he has been practicing agriculture/livestock to earn a living for his family. Currently, he’s got two milk cows and 20 goats; he sells dairy products to the farmer’s market of a nearby town. In addition to this, he plants mostly beans, onions, potatoes and tomatoes, and has some fruit trees, including persimmons, plums, quinces, etc. The minivan that he wants to buy, he will use to transport mostly schoolchildren and teachers, yet there would be no limitation to other travelers. Note that many teachers who teach in the rural areas live in the cities/towns, and also not every village has a school; thus, the traveling of these people is on a consistent basis.
