A loan of $950 helped to buy pesticides for her plants.

Natasha's story

Natasha wants to buy pesticides to use them for her plants. This will be her first time requesting a loan. Like so many others in the region, her focus has been on seasonal agriculture these past twenty years.

She resides in the southeastern part of the country, known for the largest production of red onions, potatoes, and chickpeas. The region also grows, in small quantities, delicious blueberries, called 'boronica' in the regional Albanian dialect, and the villagers sell them fresh or dried. They are costly though, and unfortunately, not everyone buys them.

Natasha has three children and lives in rural southeastern Albania. The field in the background is where she plants her produce. Her photo was taken right after an intense day of labor.
