A loan of $400 helped to buy farming supplies.

Muška's story

A Kiva Fellow recently interviewed Muška. To see a clip from the interview, check out the youtube video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvo6j84FKZ8

Muška was born in 1950. She lives in Srebrenica, a village devastated by the Bosnian war in 1995. In 1995, she was deported first to Tuzla and then to Sarajevo, where she lived until 2001. Her family was one of the first to return to her neighborhood. She now lives in Srebrenica with her husband, on a farm where she raises cows and turkeys and grows vegetables. She has two sons, both of whom are married and one of whom has children. In addition to farming and taking care of her animals, she often watches her grandchildren during the day, because their mother is a law student at a local university.

Muška requests a loan of 600KM from Women for Women, International to purchase the seeds and materials to grow and prepare a special corn-based product. The product is a mix of corn and grasses, and can be stored to feed cattle in the winter time. This is considered a specialty food for cattle, and is in high demand in Srebrenica.

Muška’s loan will be guaranteed by her daughter-in-law, Tifa E..
