A loan of $1,425 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Dhurata's story

Dhurata has four young children and she is forty. They live in a village in the southeastern part of the country. Their region has been known for their traditional ‘melt in your mouth pies’ that are baked in a very primitive way.

Here is the process; after they burn wood, on top of the coals, they put the dish and cover it with a lid called ‘saç’ with coals on top of that and ‘voila’ whether there was spinach or cheese or tomato with onions filling in the pie, it was just something else. It has also been traditional in their region that women wore an apron just like Dhurata in the picture.

Up to now, Dhurata has had goats at home and she wants to add some dairy cows also. So far she has been selling the raw milk to some dairy farm in their vicinity where they produce goat cheese, specifically.
