A loan of $1,450 helped to buy inventory items for his little village bar-restaurant.


Qani's story

This is Qani, a rural villager living in southeastern Albania. Qani is 47. He is married and has four school-aged children. For the past ten years, Qani has been operating a little village bar-restaurant. Prior to this, he worked in Greece. “This is not a restaurant someone would expect; it’s something poor serving the poorest in my village. That is. Usually I serve grilled meat and homemade fries and some dairy like cheese or cottage cheese and Raki, the traditional Albanian drink made of fruits, such as grapes, blueberries, plums etc.” said Qani during his interview. He wants to add some inventory items needed in his business and this loan will help him achieve his goal.
