A loan of $975 helped to buy a female baby calf called "mushqerra" in Albanian.


Gjysime's story

Gjysime is a mother of eight children, with one of them being born blind and with a husband who suffers from a serious illness. She lives in a rural village, is in her fifties and is requesting a loan to buy a female baby calf called “mushqerra” in the Albanian language.

Here it is what Gjysime said to the loan officer during the interview: “I started the animal husbandry business about twenty years ago, because before under the communist regime of course, we were not given such a chance. I can say that this activity has been our only source of income for all these past years.” This will be Gjysime’s first loan.
