The Roman & Egyptian thrifty items markets are the largest and only ones in the cities. She buys used shoes and/or new ones with some defects from production manufactures and sells them to local community.

Loreta divorced very long ago and has custody of a young daughter. She lives with her married daughter. She worked two jobs to raise her daughter. In addition to selling, she works as a janitor with the municipality.

The city where they reside is known for its cobblestone streets and romantic ballads, unlike any other city in Albania.
