Albania
Elbasan, Albania / Recycled Materials

A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a "tricycle" type of vehicle that ethnic Egyptians use in Albania to transport the scrap plastic to factories.


Mariglen's story

Mariglen is the husband of a young woman raised in an orphanage and a young father of two children who has been recycling plastic for long time now. A quote from his interview with the responsible interviewing staff member:

“Being part of the vulnerable ethnic minority of Egyptian Albanians, what better can you do but recycling; the majority of us do this type of activity. After I collect the scrap plastic, I sell it to large companies who deal with recycling. To help me in my activity, I need to buy a motorbike type of conveyance that members of our community use and call it ‘tricycle’. I am the only one who works in my family. I never say ‘no’ to work; I collect scrap such as glass, paper, metal and plastic.”
