A loan of $575 helped to expand her stable, since she will be adding more animals to the herd soon.


Flora's story

Flora, age 39, operates an animal husbandry business, like most rural people in northern Albania. She has been engaged in her business for almost 20 years.

She and her husband Dod (shown with her in the picture) have three children between the ages of eight and 16 years old. Dod helps Flora in the business because, as she says, "This makes it easier for me. While I take care of the animals and do the milking and feeding, he takes the milk to the local market."

Since dairy is considered one of the most staple foods in their region, they report that their earnings from this activity are not bad.

Flora now wants to expand their existing stable, since she is planning on adding some more cows and goats to the herd. She has requested a loan for this purpose.
