A loan of $2,450 helped to buy scaffolding for his construction business.

Petro's story

Petro, a married father of two children, runs a small construction business and wants to buy scaffolding for his business. He also does agriculture/livestock with a focus on planting and harvesting wheat and fodder and selling raw milk from his only dairy cow.

Petro and his family live in a field area not far from the main city of Korca, in southern Albania. The most common harvested agricultural products are wheat, potatoes, tomatoes, animal fodder, corn and beans, whereas in livestock the common animal is the cow. Usually, villages located in the field area prefer cows or even sheep. As for the traditional food, we can name the meatballs that are long versus the rounded ones; these are called “kernacka”. After they have been grilled, they are further cooked with a little bit of broth, wheat flour, tomato paste and onions, and dampened with homemade red wine or even vinegar.
