A loan of $975 helped to add more goats to the herd.


Mare's story

Mare is a 53-year-old villager and a mother of seven school-aged children, six girls and a boy. Pictured is her goat herd. She started goat-keeping about four years ago, and she has loved it. “Where I come from, the Alps of Albania, almost everyone operates such an activity. It suits the geographical landscape. The difference, though, is in the milk and the homemade cheese because the taste is different,” said Mare. Mare lived in the Alps before coming down to the current district. She is very happy with the progress of her activity. “It has grown and the demand is growing too,” she said. Mare sells homemade cheese to locals upon prior requests and also sells baby goats. When the babies are born she doesn’t milk the goats for four months because babies can grow very healthy this way, according to Mare. Mare wants to buy more goats with this loan.
