Vukosava is 59 years old, is married, and lives in Bukovica, a village near Doboj in Bosnia. Her husband earns 400KM/month (roughly equivalent to $260USD). It is not enough to support her family, so Vukosava grows vegetables and raises cows and chickens, and sells the products at the local market.
The growing cost of food is making it difficult for Vukosava to feed her animals. She is requesting a 1000KM loan from Women for Women International to purchase feed for her cattle and chickens, so they can survive the winter.
