Slavica
Slavica is 53 years old and a divorced, independent woman. She lives in a minority community of Kosovo with her 12 –year-old son. For quite some time, she has been working in an agricultural business growing vegetables on her land, and then selling the products in her area in order to make a living. She has a green house and she wants to build another one because she has a lot of business and a lot of profit.

Now Slavica is asking for a loan to purchase materials in order to build another green house. She hopes that this will help her to live an even better lifestyle and quality of life. She hopes to keep on making her own living and not having to ask others for money or rely on others for assistance. Her goal is to give a better education to her son. Slavica is very grateful to all of the Kiva lenders!
