Stojanka is 63 years old, divorced and the mother of 4 children who she lives with in a minority community in Kosovo. She has had to work hard for many years and has put a lot of effort into raising her family and supporting the children without having a husband.

Now, Stojanka needs a loan to buy a new tractor. The loan will help her to continue her business (which brings a lot of profit) and will provide her with a way to save money for her family's future. Her goal is to have better living conditions for her family. Stojanka wants to thank all Kiva lenders!
