but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to expand her farm and add more goats to grow her business and to create jobs in her community.

Vahide's story

Vahide is a mother of three children between the ages of 2 and 9 years old (picture shows Vahide and her husband). Two of her children are currently attending school and the youngest one is still at home being cared for by her. She lives in a small village in the southern part of Kosovo in sub standard conditions and with difficult economic status. Her husband works as a driver, but he makes a very low income. She is a very hard worker who is willing to do whatever it takes to give her children a better education. She has a small farm where she keeps goats to sell the milk and cheese and provide for her family. During the summer she does contract work for hair and makeup. She travels to homes of women that request her services for an event or celebration, getting them ready and making them beautiful. Although she has two jobs and her husband is working their income is very low and only enough to meet their basic needs and take care of the daily expenses.

She is requesting a loan in order to expand her farm and add more goats. The loan will allow her to increase her profits and give her a chance to be able to continue to provide for her family and even start saving some additional money for her children's education. She hopes her farm will grow and her business will be successful enough that she will need to hire an employee. She thanks all of the lenders for this opportunity.
