Pashke wants to build a stable for her animals and this is where this loan will be invested. The reason for this loan is that her current stable (as you can see in the photo) is not very stable, according to Pashke.

“The animals suffer from the cold and hot weather in this poorly built stable and I do not want my animals to go through this any longer," she says. "I am so grateful to be given the opportunity to apply for a start-up loan with lower interest rates and admin fees. Otherwise, I would not be eligible for any other loans."

Pashke is a married mother of three school-aged children. She and her family live in the rural northwest part of the country.
