She has the heavy responsibility of caring as a single parent for her family .The family’s regular monthly income is 85 Euro only. Mrs Rrahmani does not enjoy good health and her doctor recommended goat’s milk to help her recover. When she heard she will be part of project ‘Creating self-employment for rural women and families’ she cried with happiness. Mrs. Rrahmani is now much improved. She and her family are able to enjoy better health from the milk of her goats. And she is able to sell surplus to her neighbours and with upcoming spring her herd is becoming bigger and bigger.
