Based on tradition, Slavica is involved in agriculture, earning money by working on her and her neighbor's land. She is a very hard worker and plants vegetables, corn, and wheat to harvest for her family's dietary needs, to sell for income, and to earn a fee harvesting and working her neighbor’s crops.
Slavica enjoys her work and is satisfied with what she does to help her family. At this time she is requesting a loan to buy tools and machinery to continue to plow and harvest the land. The loan will help her to work more effectively and efficiently, thereby generating more income to provide a better life for her family.
She is very grateful to KIVA lenders for the financial support given to help her family.
