Zyhra, who comes from the southern part of Kosovo, lives in a village with her husband and their three children who are between the ages of 9 and 16. Her husband works as a cook in a restaurant and she is involved in agricultural work to add extra income to the family’s budget as the salary he earns as a cook is very low and not sufficient enough to provide everything for his family.
Zyhra owns cows so that she can use the milk and milk products for her family’s nutritional needs and to sell in the neighborhood. In the beginning she started with one cow and was satisfied from the profits that she was able to make selling the milk locally. Since then, she has been able to add three more cows and a calf to her business. Now, she needs to renovate the stable and is requesting a loan so that she can complete this and continue to run her business successfully. She hopes in the future to further expand her business and be able to offer a better education and life to her children from the income they earn.
