A loan of $975 helped to buy more scrap.


Manushaqe's story

Manushaqe, a 39-year-old hardworking Egyptian woman, is married and has three children, two of whom still attend school. The family resides in northern Albania under extreme poverty.

Manushaqe and her husband, Dylber, photographed here, buy and sell scrap metal for cash. They not only search for such items in the cities’ and towns’ large trash bins, but they drive around the region to buy scrap from locals. They have been carrying out this activity for the past ten years. It has been steady and somewhat profitable.

Manushaqe is applying for this loan because she and her husband need money to buy more scrap. Dylber is also talented at repairing vehicles and his dream is to someday have the opportunity to do so.
