Vjollca is a hard-working woman who is married and has three children. She is living in the South Western part of Kosovo. Vjollca has been a seamstress for the past ten years, making tablecloths, curtains, skirts, and dresses for her local customers and this is her only source of income.

For Vjollca, a typical day consists of at least 10 hours of work in order to meet the needs of her family for food, school and basic utility costs. Vjollca needs this loan to buy another sewing machine and other textiles and materials for making her products.

She is very professional and really enjoys her work. She has many requests from her customers and currently has some large orders pending. If she is able to complete them, it will improve her income and boost her business.

Vjollca’s goal is to improve her living standards as well as to save money to pay for school fees for her children. She hopes to one day be able to expand her business into the opening of her own boutique.

She is very happy for this support!
