Donika's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to repair the old bathroom in her house so it will be easier for her disabled mother to use it.

Donika's story

Donika is a 48-year-old woman from a very cold village in southeastern Albania. She was married once 20 years ago, but after divorcing her first husband she decided never to get married again. She lives with her old and disabled mother in her grandparents' house. Donika works in agriculture for a living, selling 30 litres of raw milk daily and three calves each year. She also plants different vegetables. Five years ago she bought an ice cream machinery, which she uses during summer for the village's residents. She makes a traditional ice cream, with only milk and sugar, without any colouring or artificial flavouring. Despite all of her efforts, it is very difficult for her to afford her disabled mother's expenses. This is why she has no savings to do any repairs at her house.

Donika hopes that with your support she will make some repairs to her old bathroom so it will be more comfortable for her disabled mother.
