A loan of $1,475 helped to buy used clothing and other items to resell.


Myzejen's story

Myzejen requests a first time loan to increase her stock of second-hand clothing to resell. For the past ten years, she has been buying and reselling such items in the market of a city in southern Albania. Myzejen, a 53-year-old mother of a 14-year-old son with disabilities, is an Egyptian from the most vulnerable ethnic minority of Albania. This photograph is taken in front of her own so called “home”. Some members of this community live under difficult circumstances with no water and sanitation. Poor nutrition is also a problem. Those members who haven’t excelled even under the new regime, still live in suburbia and under similar conditions to Myzejen. Other members who have done well have moved out of their community to avoid the stigma.
