directories need to have 'x' permission(eXecute) to be browsable.

The other question is why the directory was created that way. What is your umask? What is the output from the umask command? The most common is 0022.

Thank you all guys. I've added umask 0020 to .bash_profile of that user and now everything is ok

Thank you all!
