The owner of the 'lucky' folder is an account with the uid 1001 - since you are having access to the 'cloud-user' directory you must be connecting as 'cloud-user'. That user does not have access to the 'lucky' folder because of the uid being 1001 and the directory is not readable for other users (or groups). If the directory of the '1001' folder would have right drawer-xr-x you would be able to read it.

To give access:

# cd /home
# chmod 755 lucky

And to check what is wrong:

# grep lucky /etc/passwd

If you require many users to have access to files + directories owned by other users, research the setfacl command also.
