Fixherije is a 39-year-old married mother of three children between the ages of 7 and 14. They live in the southern part of Kosovo. She has been operating a handicraft business for more than 10 years. Her husband works in construction for a private company and earns a very low salary. Often she has orders for weddings, special events, and casual wear for her local customers. She is very keen in her job and loves work very much.
She is requesting a loan through KosInvest to buy material for her work since she has a lot of orders and has used up all of the material she currently has. So far, she has been sustaining her business through all of her hard work and dedication. She hopes to increase her income and to expand her business in the future so that she can have her own shop. Knowing that this is a Kiva loan, she wants to thank all lenders!
