A loan of $1,425 helped to stock up on inventory items for her brand new village grocery store.


Bardhe's story

Bardhe, whose name in English means white, is a 50-year-old mother of six children. She is a villager from the rural north, and the way she’s dressed up shows just that. People from this region are easily distinguished in Albania due to their traditional wear, usually with half of their head covered and their hair in braiding. Bardhe has been photographed in front of the brand new store she just finished building a few months back, yet she was lacking money to stock it with inventory items that she plans to sell. Thus, she preferred to have the picture taken outside the store because she did not like the emptiness inside. “It will be like a grocery store where I can sell some toiletries,” said Bardhe.
