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

A loan helped to buy potato seeds for planting.

Mirjana's story

Mirjana wants to buy potato seeds for planting. What you see in the background of the photograph is her house, the stable and the hay barn. She is 37, and has three young-aged children. Mirjana has been in the livestock type of activity for the past ten years and has been selling raw milk to a nearby dairy farm. Here is what she said to the officer who interviewed her: “Our village is struck by extreme cold and snowy winters. So, we have to make sure that our animals stay warm and inside in their stables throughout the cold weather. As soon as we see some sun rays coming down, we take the animals out of their stable so that they breathe some fresh air. We must take great care of our animals, because we secure our staple food for our children, but this wouldn’t be enough if we didn’t sell some agricultural products, such as grain, red onions and potatoes.”
