A loan of $475 helped to buy inexpensive summer clothes to resell.


Rubie's story

Rubie is proud to be an Egyptian Albanian. Here is what she said to the loan officer,” I am proud of our ethnicity. Members of our community are hard-workers and authentic with a zeal for life. After the collapse of the previous regime, we were given plenty of opportunities from the Albanian government and foreign agencies also to thrive and improve our lives. So, we did; majority of us, of course. Today we have jobs and businesses that we never had and never dreamed to have. Our children go to schools now, and these are accomplishments we are proud of, today.” Rubie ended her conversation. Rubie is a widowed mother of three children; two of whom are still going to school. For the past 10 years, she has been selling inexpensive clothes in the streets, as you can see from the picture. She now wants to buy summer clothes to resell.
