A loan of $975 helped to use towards cultivating field for eggplants.

Mediha's story

Mediha is a 30-year-old woman living in Gračanica. She is married and has one 3-year-old daughter. Her husband works in construction and finds work when he can during the summer season. He typically doesn't work in the winter, so they try to save what he makes in the summer to last them the whole year. Other than his salary they do not have many other sources of income right now.

This is Meiha’s first loan with Žene za Žene, which she has requested in the amount of 1200 KM (US$ 975). She plans to use this money towards cultivating her fields for growing more eggplants, a very popular vegetable here in Bosnia. She will need to purchase some pesticides to protect her plants over the next months, and also hopes to buy a sprinkler system for the fields. Mediha is pictured here by her land, part of which is already sown. She hopes to make a good profit here and use their earnings to make finishing touches on the home she and her husband have built for their family.
