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

A loan helped to work the land and to buy leeks, onions and spinach seeds for the next working season.

Etleva's story

Agriculture is the main activity at Etleva's region. She and her husband are all the year engaged planting different vegetables. Since they had to pay a higher school fee this year for their elder son who started high school, they are lacking savings to buy leeks, onions and spinach seeds for the next working season so they will be able to keep providing for their family.

Besides the selling of the vegetables Etleva also has 6 cows, from which she sells the raw milk daily and 6 calves once per year. Her husband goes to work during the peak season in Greece because there he can make a better income. Both of them try very hard and struggle all day to provide for their family. They are happily parents of 3 children, aged 14, 10 and 1 year old. Etleva is seen in the photo with her daughter.

Etleva thanks you all for your possible support in advance, you will enable her to keep with her daily activity.
