Mirjana
Mirjana comes from a minority community in Kosovo. She is the mother of three children and is employed as a nurse while her husband works in a municipality. Both Mirjana and her husband receive very low salaries, making things difficult for them. As with all minority communities, they are living in bad conditions. After the war, the economy was destroyed and the community has not been able to further develop or prosper.

Mirjana is requesting a loan to complete renovations on her her very old house, specifically to repair the roof. Her loan will help her family be able to address a longstanding problem that affects the health and living environment of her family. Mirjana is grateful to lenders for this opportunity.

More information about this loan

This loan will support the economic aspirations of minority people in Kosovo. Roma people and ethnic Serbians have historically faced a tremendous amount of hardship in Kosovo, and are still socioeconomically and politically vulnerable. During the 1998-1999 war, the fighting displaced 250,000 people. Among those displaced were an estimated 80-90% of the region’s Roma population. Today, Roma and ethnic Serbians living in Kosovo still face discrimination and are excluded from many aspects of society, including fair political representation and high rates of unemployment. By supporting this loan you are helping provide opportunity to marginalized populations.
