A loan of $1,000 helped to repair the existing stable.

Beqir's story

This is Beqir with his goats and their babies inside the stable that he wants to repair. Besides these animals, he’s also got two dairy cows, five sheep, walnuts, plum orchards and grapevines.

Beqir is a rural villager who lives in the south-central part of the country, not far from the major city of Elbasan. He sells several products at the farmer’s market: jam that he and his wife make out of the fresh walnuts, compote made of plums and red wine made primitively out of his own grapevines. They also sell animal products such as 0.5 % low-fat cow cottage cheese and ‘the most wanted cheese’ amongst the majority of Albanian residents, full-fat and unsalted goat cheese. Note here that some people eat the goat cheese with sugar or honey or syrup.
