A loan of $2,975 helped to invest in a mini school bus.

Fatmir's story

Fatmir wants to invest in a mini school bus, similar to the one shown in the picture. He got a recent contract from the Ministry of Education to transport teachers and school children. Usually 99% of teachers who teach in the rural areas are city residents; thus, they’ve got to travel every day approximately 3-4 hours both ways. Children are required to travel, as well, since, for most of them, school is located far from their village. Some children don’t even make it to school, unfortunately, due to the lack of funds; they have to pay for such expenses out of pocket.

Except for this business, Fatmir and his wife own plenty of plum orchards and sell the fruit to wholesalers.
