Blagica is 42 years old, has two children and lives with her family in one of the minority communities in Kosovo. She is a nurse and her husband works in the post office, but they are also involved in agriculture. They own some land where they plant wheat and corn which they sell and also use to feed their family. This business yields a good profit and additional income, which allows them to save for their children’s futures. Blagica is now in need of a loan in order to purchase a trailer and new tools. By continuing to work hard in her multiple jobs, she hopes to provide better living conditions for her family. She would like to thank all Kiva lenders.
