A loan of $1,900 helped to stock up on fabric raw material.


Lulezim's story

Lulezim is a Roma man who has been selling fabric raw material for the past ten years in the city of his residence. Lulezim goes to Turkey to stock up on fabric to sell. He is requesting his first loan to stock up on raw material. Many people of his community have been pursuing the same type of activity since the collapse of the communist regime and they have been successful at it. They have been able to build good lives for their families. Albanians like to have their clothes custom made rather than buying them off the rack. One reason for this is that it is less expensive. The second reason is that under the previous regime there were no clothes in the stores so everyone would go to tailors to have them stitched. Lulezim has three young children who are ten, nine and seven years old and all of them attend school. They live in a main city in south central Albania.
