A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Dritan's story

Dritan is a 38-year-old married man and father of three children, the youngest just 10 months. He lives in the suburbs of a small city in northwest Albania. He works very hard to provide for the other five members of the family.

Dritan is focused on agriculture/livestock. He has one dairy cow from which he makes organic cheese and sells it for a profit of around $55/month. He also sells a calf each year for $390. He has rented out 24 dynym of agricultural land where he has planted fodder for the cow. Dritan has planted a vineyard around his house. He uses the grapes for producing wine and “raki,” the Albanian drink. In addition, he works part-time in construction.

Dritan’s mother lives with him. She is a retiree and takes a retirement pension of $100. His wife takes care of his children.

Dritan is requesting a loan to buy another dairy cow. It will be another source of income for the family.
