A loan of $575 helped to install windows and doors in her family home.


Valentina's story

Valentina is 38 and a vulnerable ethnic Egyptian Albanian who is married and has two children. They are 16 and 17 and attend public secondary school in their rural village in Southeastern Albania. Agriculture is the only activity that Valentina has been practicing for the past 10 years, and through this she has generated an income for all her family. She has been selling her fresh produce to the local market of a main city in her vicinity. “I bring home some money, and this is very important in our situation because at least we have the basic food on our table. Maybe we need more money, and that is true, but this is what we have been blessed with, and I am very grateful for it," Valentina said. Valentina is requesting this loan to install doors and windows in her family home, which you can see in the background of the photo.
