Migena's story

From rural southeastern Albania, Migena is a 37-year-old married mother of three children ranging from four to 15 years of age. Lately she has been feeling unwell and needs to see a doctor and undergo some tests. This is why she is requesting this loan from you.

Migena earns an income through agriculture, which she has been involved in since her early twenties. On the land that her family owns she plants potatoes, beans and wheat in large quantities and sells only potatoes and beans; the wheat is kept for family consumption. The annual income from potatoes is about $3800 and from beans $780. For health reasons her husband cannot work or help her in any way; he receives a disability income of $95/month.
