Albania / Used Clothing

A loan of $1,400 helped to buy seasonal used clothes to resell.


Drita's story

Drita, a mother of three children, is in her fifties. She is a Romani woman from one of the most vulnerable ethnic minority communities of south central Albania. Like almost everyone in her ethnic neighborhood, Drita has been selling used clothes in the Roma clothing market in her city that is known as the largest in Albania.

She has been doing this for the past 20 years and has no plans to stop any time soon. She claims that she makes an income from it. Now that her children are somewhat independent, she plans on improving their poor living conditions with the little money she might be able to save.

Drita is requesting a loan of 150,000 Albanian Lek from VisionFund Albania, in order to buy more seasonal used clothes to resell.
