Tereze has been practicing livestock for the past 15 years as a means of income. She is in her fifties and has three children who attend school and a husband who she has to look after since he is disabled. “Tereze is a very loving and good natured lady” were some statements from her neighbors and people in the village.

A loan of 200,000 Albanian Lek that she is requesting will help her buy some land where she can plant more crops and veggies. The sales from the agricultural produce in addition to her current livestock activities will hopefully boost her family’s income.

Tereze will be very appreciative to all lenders for their financial help.
