Ndricim is a cameraman and DJ by profession, and with this loan, he wants to buy some equipment for his little activity. He’s been photographed inside the studio of his practice.

Ndricim is 33 and married with two children, 4 years old and 16 months old. He and his wife did seasonal work in Greece for many years. Now they are settled, and he wants to invest more time and money in his own activity. They also have some land that they have never used before; hence, they will start planting crops on the land, or even orchards.

Their village is known for the quantity production of persimmons, figs and grapevines. Some homemade jams from figs, apples and plums are prepared by villagers, and that makes them proud. Housewives also prepare homemade spaghetti that looks so much like tagliatelle. To eat this spaghetti, they melt butter and sauté a bit of raw garlic and, “voila”.
