Bardhe

Albania
Lezhe, Albania / Livestock

A loan of $1,500 helped to add one more cow and to repair the stable.


Bardhe's story

Bardhe, whose name in Albanian means ‘white’, is dressed in black because she is still grieving after her 28-year-old son drowned 7 months ago while he was digging a well for pay in a village far from his home. “I cannot stop crying; I feel guilt, I feel remorse, I feel all these terrible things,” said Bardhe during her interview.

Bardhe is a married mother of seven children who, until a year ago, lived with one of her married sons in Greece. As soon as she arrived back to her native village, she bought two sheep, one goat and the two cows you see in the picture. She wants to use this loan to further expand her livestock activity by adding one more cow and repairing the existing stable.
