Violeta's story

This is Violeta, a 46-year-old married lady with no children. She is standing in the cold in front of her house where she wants to build a fence with your loan. For the past 10 years, she’s been pursuing agriculture/livestock. In the 2,700 square meters of agricultural land she owns, she has planted grapevines and sells homemade wine and an alcoholic drink called locally ‘raki’ and also plants seasonal veggies. She’s also got a dairy cow and sells about 13 liter/day raw milk and a calf/year and has five beehives and sells raw honey. Violeta’s husband is passionate about the beehive activity and he wants to expand this. Where they have the beehives, they can be fed with chestnut/heather and arbutus unedo or strawberry trees or cane apple, native to Western Europe and the Mediterranean basin. From the latest, people here in Albania even make an alcoholic drink called ‘raki mare’.
