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

A loan helped to build a decent stable, as the one seen in the background is not in good shape.

Gezim's story

Gezim or 'Joy' is 40 years old and a married father of two children aged 19 and 11. They all live in the rural northern part of the country. Gezim's disabled sister lives with them as well, and Gezim is her caretaker.

Gezim has been doing agriculture/livestock for the past 20 years. With your loan he wants to build a decent stable since the one seen in the background is not good at all, as Gezim stated. His family owns only 2 dynym land and they've rented from other villagers some 30 more, planting mostly wheat and corn and leaving the rest of it as natural pasture for the animals. Currently, he's got 4 dairy cows, 2 female young cows, 6 sows and 30 piglets. From all of these the earnings are as follows: 20 liters of raw milk a month for a total price of $145, $1,080/year from selling three calves, $2600/year from selling roughly 80-100 piglets.
