Lumnije's story

Lumnije is a 28-year-old widow. She has one child. Lumnije lives in the southern part of Kosovo in the Ashkali community. The Ashkali community is typically poor and has substandard living conditions. Lumnije owns a small farm stable with a cow. She provides milk and milk products for the family. She wants to expand her farm and to add more cows in order to sell milk products in her area.

To earn more money, she also works as a caregiver (babysitter), which is a common way for women in this community to earn a small income. She loves what she does and is committed to it because she likes caring for babies.

Because she is a widow, she must work harder and longer hours to earn enough money for living expenses. With a goal to further grow her farm business, she requested a loan from KosInvest-Kiva to renovate her stable.

She is hoping to be able to save money for her child’s education expenses. She is aware that without Kiva lenders support, her life will be difficult. She really appreciative this help!
