Dragana is 31 years old. She lives in a minority community with her husband and three children, between the ages of 4 and 11 years old. While she is a housewife, taking care of her home and children, her husband works for an electrical company.

The income that her husband earns from his salary is barely enough for their daily expenses. This means that the annex room that they started to build a long time ago has not been finished despite attempts to save the money to do so.

Now, for the first time, Dragana is requesting a loan in order to finish the room and facade the house in order to have a pleasant atmosphere and improve their living conditions. Her goal is to find a job in the future so that she can also contribute to their income and help give her family a better education and life. She wants to thank the lenders for this support!
