Madona's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to start a tourism business and rent a guesthouse to tourists.

Madona's story

Madona is 28 years old, married and a hard-working woman who tries her best to provide good living conditions for her husband and their three children. Sadly, for lack of economic resources and a high unemployment rate in the region, she was unable to obtain a higher education and find a stable job.

Madona and her husband work hard on family-owned agricultural land, growing potatoes and taking care of pigs and horses. They also have a dairy farm and produce milk products such as cheese and yogurt to sell. Their products are high quality and sold to local retailers for a good price.

As the region where they live is very popular with tourists, Madona decided to start a tourism business and open a guesthouse. She needs money to renovate the house so she can start renting the rooms at a profitable price, and she is turning to you for assistance.

Please help her - she is depending on your support!
