A loan of $925 helped to buy used items to resell.

Artur's story

Artur is 27 years old and a Roma married man with two children who are five and three years old. They all live in a major city in the central Albania, where the majority of their community lives. Almost all in his community have commented on his personable and responsible nature, and the hard work he has does to provide for his family as well as helping members in his community.

This is Artur’s first time applying for a loan of 100,000 Albanian Lek through VisionFund Albania to buy used items to resell. In addition to his activity of selling used items, he also owns a truck that offers transportation services to other members of his Romani community and also transports his own materials.

“I am devoted to my business, my family and my community and I want to provide my children with the best education and life that I never had. I can achieve this only by working hard and expanding my business.” These were Artur’s words when he was interviewed by the VFA’s loan officer.
