Nesiba was born in 1948. She lives in Kotorsko, an agricultural village in Bosnia. She is married and lives with her husband who receives a retirement pension of 400KM/month, (about $261USD). She also has an adult son, who continues to live with her.
To support her family, Nesiba grows vegetables and raises chickens and cows. She has had four microfinance loans in the past, all of which she repaid successfully. She used the first two loans to buy calves, the third loan to buy chickens, and the fourth loan to buy food for her cows. Her husband helps her in the field and with taking care of the animals.
Nesiba requests a loan of 1,500KM from Women for Women, International, to purchase food for her three cows. In the future, she hopes to use another loan to purchase another calf.
