Ruzhdi's story

Ruzhdi is an Egyptian man from one of the two most vulnerable ethnic communities of Albania. He is married and has three children, with one of them still attending school. In spite of the fact that the majority of people live in their community, Ruzhdi settled himself in a village twenty years back where no other persons from his ethnicity reside; this way he and his children will integrate better, he thought.

Ruzhdi and his wife, at the same time of relocation, started a farming business and have been successful ever since. With the income they generated, they made a better life for their family and now they want to save for their youngest daughter’s university tuition fees.

The loan they request this time is for farming: buying seeds, plowing, and other services.
