A loan helped to purchase two milk cows to be able to continue to provide for his family, both financially and nutritionally.


Shkelzen's story

Shkelzen is 23 years old and is a single, ambitious man who has many hopes and aspirations for his future.

Based on family tradition, he is involved in agricultural work, selling milk and is the main source of income for his family. Although he lives with his parents, they are elderly and he is the one who is capable of working. He has had to stop his studies in order to provide for the family and address their lack of money. He has also been working in construction, but his salary is very low and he has supplemented it with his milk sales.

At this time he is requesting a loan in order to purchase two milk cows. The loan will help him to be able to continue to provide for his family, both financially and nutritionally, as well as save on food expenses.

He currently has one cow but needs more to keep up with the demand and to generate higher levels of income. He would like to eventually have his own construction business and be able to continue his farm, employing someone to work on it while he is running his other business.
