This is Loreta and her cow being photographed in front of the stable! She wants to add another cow, and she is seeking your financial help to make her goal a reality.

Loreta is 40 years old and married. She is the mother of two children: 20 and 15 years old. Agriculture/livestock is what she has been pursuing from the very beginning as a means for generating an income, just like almost every household in her village. She owns the cow in the photograph. She also plants wheat, fodder, beans and onions; she sells them dried.

Loreta’s village is an old village built in a Gothic style. It is similar to Italian vintage style with cobblestone streets dating back to the 1920s. There are five Orthodox churches. The village draws lots of visitors throughout the year.
