Fatos, who lives in southeastern Albania with his family, is a father and a loving grandfather to his granddaughters, whom he adores.

A loan of ALL 120,000 (Albanian lek) will help Fatos to replace some damaged parts of his harvester machine that recently broke down and that he cannot afford to repair with his own money.

Fatos has been serving the villagers with his agricultural harvester machine and has also been planting and selling vegetables to locals. “I have been practicing my services for the last fifteen years now and have been able to make a good income and also enjoy helping my fellow villagers,” Fatos said.
