Hava, 41 years old, is married and has two children, aged 8 and 10. Her husband works in construction. The city where Hava lives is more economically developed than other cities in Kosovo and is known for its handicrafts and trading.

For the last several years, Hava has been making and selling handicraft items to earn her living. She operates her business from home and sells locally to customers in the area and also internationally, as she sends her wares to her sister in Switzerland, who sells them there.

Business is going very well for Hava, due to the committed effort that she puts into her work. She has requested this loan in order to buy textile materials to continue making her items. Her goal is to improve her family's living conditions and to save money towards her children’s education.

She is very thankful for the help!
