Aventura wants to buy potato seeds for planting. She has been in the agricultural type of activity for five years. She plants and sells potatoes and she also has cows and she sells raw milk to the local market of a main city in southern Albania.
Aventura is a 30-year-old mother of three young aged children; one of her children, her daughter, was born with medical conditions. “I suffer every minute I see my daughter in such a condition but I can’t do much. So far, I have done it all and the doctors have made me aware that there would be no treatment. When I was told the news, I broke down, because up until then I was in denial and wanted to believe that there would be some treatment for such cases. Slowly, I have started to come to terms with and take it day by day. Anyhow, thank God that I am a stay-at-home mother so that I can take great care of her,” Aventura said.
