A loan of $1,200 helped to make basic repairs to their family home.


Shkelqim's story

Shkelqim, whose name means “shiny” in English, wants to make some repairs to their family home. He is 34 and has two children, 8 and 6 years old. He is photographed inside the stable.

Shkelqim’s main activity is agriculture / livestock; yet he works as a concierge / security guard in a nearby hotel. His family lives in a little village, covered in green, not far from the city of Elbasan. These last ten years, the city and the village have expanded; hence, the village is now considered suburbia. Living in suburbia makes it easier for villagers to bring their fresh produce to the farmers’ market in the city.
