Rovena's story

Rovena is a 23-year-old married mother of two young children. They are Romas, and live in south-central Albania in a major city where majority of their community lives. She is described by others as a hard-working lady; she works as a janitor every day, while she sells used items, mostly clothes, at the market.

Rovena has got plans; she wants to improve their living conditions, and educate her children. “And the only way to do this is by working hard,” she said. “In my community, we’ve gotten used to not educating our children, yet, now we see more and more of our children being sent to school, and this is nice."

She is now requesting a loan for the first time, because she wants to buy more second-hand clothes and resell them. The amount she needs is 100,000 ALL( Albanian Lek).
