A loan of $1,900 helped to build a stable for her animals.


Ruta's story

Ruta has applied for a loan from VisionFund Albania that will enable her to build a stable for her animals. Ruta is in her early 50s, married and has two sons who are 25 and 23 years old. They live together in northern Albania. For a very long time, Ruta’s husband has been isolated and living in a fortified tower to avoid attacks due to a blood feud, which is very common in some regions in the north. Ruta has been practicing livestock and agriculture as the only source of income for over 13 years. Her children have been helping her as well. Her youngest son continues his university studies and is available to offer some help only in the summer time. Her oldest son is full time by her side. “Without any help from my husband, it would have been very difficult, if I had to support all of them on my own. My kids have been my greatest support these latest years and I am very grateful to them,” Ruta stated.
