A loan helped to buy a cow and its calf so she can add them to her current herd and thus make more income for her family.


Lavdije's story

Lavdije is 53 years old and the married mother of two children, both of them living abroad for studying and working. Lavdije lives only with her husband, who is disabled and receives a disability pension of $83 per month. Lavdije previously had Kiva lenders' support to pay for her husband's medical clinic expenses. "Thank God and thanks to your support he feels better now!", said Lavdije gratefully during the interview.

For the past 20 years, Lavdije has been engaged in agriculture and livestock to earn a living for her family. On the land that her family owns, she plants beans, corn, wheat and fodder for the animals. Lavdije has also a part-time job, where she packs different fruits for exportation for a fruit company.

Lavdije is asking for Kiva lenders' support, this time to buy a cow and its calf so she can add them to her current herd and thus make more income for her family. Part of the loan is going to be used to repay a previous loan.
