Lavdije

Albania
Korce, Albania / Farming

A loan of $2,000 helped to buy food for the trout she raises in a reservoir built in her backyard.


Lavdije's story

Lavdije runs a small fish farm where she raises trout. She is now requesting a loan to buy fish food.

Seen in the photograph is one of the reservoirs with fish in the first stage (1-3 months) of growth; Lavdije also has another reservoir for the last stage (4-9 or 12 months). The reservoirs are built adjacent to her house, and her clientele consists of the area villages, including local restaurants.

Lavdije’s village is built in craggy mountains; women in this village have had their traditional handmade, embellished red and white costumes, for generations. Older women even dress up in such costumes daily. While the soil is not good for growing vegetables, it supports livestock including cows, sheep and goats.
