A loan of $950 helped to purchase some inventory of used clothes to sell to locals.


Nertila's story

Nertila is twenty-six, married, has one child aged seven and is an Egyptian woman from a major city in central Albania. Approximately 80,000 Egyptians have been living in this city for a long time. They were extremely discriminated against and lived poorly under the Communist era; yet, in recent years the Albanian government and foreign organizations have helped tremendously in reducing the stigma and discrimination against this wonderful minority and improve their living conditions.

For the past two years Nertila started selling used clothes and has been the sole provider for her family since then. She makes a small income that gives them the opportunity to have some very basic food on the table and is happy for that.

Nertila is now applying for a loan for the first time to purchase some inventory of used clothes. Being a responsible person, she promises she will pay back the loan.
