Natasa
Natasa is 46 years old and married, the mother of an 18-year-old son. Together with her son and husband, she lives in a minority community in Kosovo. Her husband does administration work in a public company, and she has owned her business, roasting coffee, for more than five years.

She is very satisfied with the income she earns from her business, and she serves all of the people that live in her community and nearby. Natasa is a very hard-worker, opening her store very early in the morning and working until late in the evening.

Her café machine has been working every day for the last five years, but is beginning to wear out from such extreme use. Since the money she generates from her business is not enough to buy a new machine she is requesting a loan in order to purchase the new one and some coffee for selling.

The loan will help her to improve her business and gain more customers. She appreciates this help!

More information about this loan

This loan will support the economic aspirations of minority people in Kosovo. Roma people and ethnic Serbians have historically faced a tremendous amount of hardship in Kosovo, and are still socioeconomically and politically vulnerable. During the 1998-1999 war, the fighting displaced 250,000 people. Among those displaced were an estimated 80-90% of the region’s Roma population. Today, Roma and ethnic Serbians living in Kosovo still face discrimination and are excluded from many aspects of society, including fair political representation and high rates of unemployment. By supporting this loan you are helping provide opportunity to marginalized populations.
