A loan of $650 helped to take his taxi vehicle to the auto shop for essential repairs.


Elvis's story

Elvis earns an income by operating a taxi service. He is an Egyptian man from one of the two most vulnerable ethnic minority communities of Albania. He and his wife have a seven-year-old child and a one-year-old baby. The family lives in the southeastern part of the country.

Even though Elvis has been fully integrated in society in some ways, he still lives in his own community and “loves to serve his own people the most,” he says laughing, because they are the most vulnerable, according to him. He has been offering taxi transportation services to and from his city for some time and his work has kept him increasingly busy. He thanks God for all the good things offered to him because, despite being the sole provider for his family, he has been able to supply them with necessities, he says.

The loan Elvis is requesting will allow him to take his taxi vehicle to the auto shop for repairs. He will immediately begin operating his vehicle again once the repairs are made.
