Bajram's story

Bajram is in his early 60s and a Roma man, who was widowed nearly twenty years ago, when his only child was two-and-a-half years old. Bajram lived and worked in Greece for almost 10 years, accompanied by his son. For the most recent ten years, they both have been living in their city in south-central Albania, in their community.

Bajram has been offering transportation services to members of his community, with his own cart and horses. “It has been profitable, and I have been enjoying this activity, too. It’s beautiful! It’s kind of traditional in our Romani community,” Bajram said.

“For all these past years, my only goal was to raise my son, and now that I feel I have accomplished that, I'd like to improve our living conditions. It’s about time, yet I know that I can’t achieve this without lenders' support,” he ended his conversation.
