A loan of $1,000 helped to add a dairy cow to her existing herd.

Emine's story

This is Emine, a 54-year-old married mother of two, who’s been photographed with her horse that she uses for transportation. Many villagers in this southeastern region use horses for transportation, whereas in other regions donkeys are the most used for such a purpose.

Emine does agriculture/livestock for a living. She is requesting a loan of 100,000 Albanian Lek (ALL) to add a dairy cow to her existing herd. She works very hard because her husband has some health problems with his legs and he uses walking sticks in both of his hands.

A bit about Emine’s village: it’s a very hilly countryside and, for this reason, livestock is the most preferred activity among the locals. However, they don’t limit themselves to the planting and harvesting of wheat, animal fodder and dried pinto and lima beans. Pickled white cabbage, tomatoes, peppers and stuffed peppers with cottage cheese are their staple winter foods.
