Fatiko's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy one more milk cow.
As a married parent of 2 young children, Fatiko, a 24-year-old, works very hard to support her family, who currently stand below the poverty level. She plants veggies and crops in her garden and sells cow milk to locals; this income she makes from dairy is the only one for her family. Fatiko is borrowing 50,000 LEK through VisionFund Albania to buy another milk cow to increase the milk production, since she has a clientele already. With the previous loan from the same institution, she purchased the cows she has at the moment. This loan has been repaid. Fatiko has been sustaining her business activities through the past six years and has been content with the activity and income. She hopes that her hard work and income will help her attain her dream to improve their living conditions.
