A loan of $2,000 helped to build a washroom in their newly-built family house.


Zef's story

Zef, a father of five children, came to the current location three years ago. He has built a new house, yet it does not have a washroom. He’s built a very primitive one, some meters away from home, like the ones every house in the village had up until some years after the collapse of the regime.

The village where they currently reside is at the foot of a single isolated mountain, with a seemingly flat summit plateau, with elevations over 1,880 feet above sea level. The name of this mountain comes from the name of water wells that, fortunately, are numerous. There are copper mines built since the first years of the communism era and a small Catholic church built 800 years ago. The mountain is covered with snow all year round and foreigners prefer to go hiking.

Zef practices livestock and agriculture to make a living for the family of seven. He has pigs, chickens, and a dairy cow. He also plants and harvests wheat in large quantities that he sells to wholesale buyers and sellers.
