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

A loan helped to obtain a licence for her fast-food shop and to pay the social insurance for herself, so she will be compliant with the taxes and can perform her activity peacefully.

Fatbardha's story

Fatbardha said during the interview: "Five years ago, a big shoe manufacturer opened near our house. During lunchtime some of the girls working there would come to my house and ask to buy a slice of bread to eat as they didn't take food from their house and there was nothing near where they could buy something to eat. I used to give some of them lunch every day, until one day one of them suggested that I open a small fast-food shop, where I could sell different fast foods and so I did. I have been working for two years now, but without a licence. I have been told that I need one and that I have to pay for my social insurance during this period. I want to register it properly and pay all that is needed, so I won't have any problem with the state!"

Fatbardha is 40 years old. She is married and a mother of three. Her husband works close to their village in a factory, while her children are all in school.

Fatbardha thanks all of you for the support, which will enable her to work peacefully in her small fast-food shop.
