Bukurije at age 24 has 2 children ages 2 and 7 years old. They are all living in the Ashakli community and, like most people there, they are extremely poor and live in bad conditions. She is a housewife, staying home to care for the children and the house, but also receiving social help. Her husband is a musician who performs during celebrations and events. As his income is primarily obtained in the warmer spring and summer months, he tries to save the money he makes for the winter when his business is slow since the social help they receive is not enough to meet the family needs. Bukurije helps her husband making arrangements for performances and is very supportive of him and his work. She is now asking for a loan to be able to purchase new instruments for her husband. This loan will make it easier for him to find work and provide better entertainment to his clients. She promises to pay on time and thanks all of the lenders.
