Geg, this fifty-eight-year-old man, lives in the northwest of Albania with his three grown-up children, his wife and his parents, according to Albanian family customs.

Livestock has been the only activity he has been involved in for the past sixteen years, “As a business almost twelve years ago now, I applied for the first loan from VisionFund Albania, and since then I have received three in total. These loans were a godsend; without them, it would have been difficult to expand the activity and for this I am very grateful to the institution,” Geg said.

“I now need another loan to repair the stable because the land where the stable was built collapsed and the stable was destroyed as well due to this,” he continued.
