Shazade is thirty-eight years old and is married. She lives in the southwestern part of Kosovo with her husband and two children. She is a very hardworking woman.

She has been a seamstress for more than ten years and makes tablecloths, curtains, skirts, and traditional wedding dresses for her local customers.
Sheazade is requesting a loan to buy another sewing machine and additional materials for her work. Her goal is to earn a higher income and expand her business, eventually owning a shop. She is happy about the financial support from KIVA lenders because it helps her to secure a stable future for her family, improving their living conditions and saving money towards her children’s education.
