A loan of $2,425 helped to build a stable for her animals.


Gjystina's story

Gjystina is 52 years old, married, and has six children, the youngest of whom is 12 years old. They live in the northeast of Albania. In the region where they reside, there are power outages all the time, and flooding as well. While last year, their region was covered in snow that brought severe loss in almost every household, this year they are suffering from flooding. Despite all the struggles caused by weather conditions, Gjystina has been operating an agricultural business for almost nine years.

“With all the hard work, I would have probably secured a better life for all of us; yet, after all the extreme weather events, at least I can bring the basics for my family,” she said. “I want to build a stable now for the animals, because I have been sheltering them at my neighbors' place during these past cold and rainy months,” Gjystina added.
