A loan of $1,450 helped to buy a construction crane.


Alban's story

Alban and Nertila are a couple in their thirties who have two children, three and two years old. The whole family has been photographed here. They live in suburbia of a little town in northern Albania. Some five years back, being talented at paving tiles, Alban started his own business in the field. He has managed to keep himself busy ever since. “I compete with quality; this is probably the reason that I don’t see any slowdown, because some others who practice this trade have already gone out of business,” Alban said. “I want to buy a construction crane now with this loan, to speed up the process and avoid injuries, because until now I have been carrying all materials around and to the floors in my hands and I have felt exhausted after all and have injured my feet,” Alban added.
