Drane recently opened up an eating house in the town where she resides herself. She serves traditional food at a reasonable price and usually these types of restaurants turn out to be profitable because the lunch or dinner costs not more than $2 and you can find plenty of them throughout the country.

"I enjoy cooking and serving, and running my own restaurant will be a real blessing for me," said Drane.

Drane now wants to stock up on needed items for her business and she hopes that she will get some consideration from lenders in this regard. The amount she needs is a total of 150,000 Albanian Lek.

She is 51 years old and has four children, all teenagers.
