They reside in a main city in southeastern Albania, where the majority of their community lives.

Initially, Vjollca bought a female pig, and at the moment she has four of them; this is her little activity where she generates an income. She and her son, Ledjan, in the photo, are in the business together.

Vjollca and her family are indeed poor, as you can tell by their photograph.
