Flurije is a married mother of five children. She is a very hardworking woman who has led a difficult life. Her husband is blind and unable to support his family, leaving the responsibility of the family life and the finances to Flurije. As if things were not difficult enough, she also cares for her husband’s elderly mother who is ill and lives with them. As a way to be able to balance all of the needs and responsibilities, Flurije keeps a cow and plants vegetables. She sells the milk, milk products, and vegetables in her neighborhood and uses them to provide food and nutrition for her family. She has been able to provide for everyone this way and pay for an education for her children. Now she is in need of a loan in order to purchase a male calf that she will be able to raise and sell in December when he is older and prices are higher. She hopes that the loan will improve their living conditions for her family. Despite all of her hardships and difficulties, she continues to work hard and remain optimistic. Flurije hopes in the future to be able to give her children a better education and opportunities in life. She is grateful for the support and opportunity and wants to thank all of the lenders.
