EYE and KCBS join forces for more opportunities in the northern Kosovo
EYE and Kosovo Center for Business Support (USAID funded project) jointly will fund grant scheme that will support the total of 126 farmers in the north of Kosovo. These grants will allow farming families from this region to have better equipment, improve production techniques, and better access to their markets. This joint investment by EYE and KCBS is expected to increase the number of employed from 126 to 252 and will secure higher incomes up to €600/month (from €300). In the next two years the projected income from sales should reach more than 200,000 Euros and enable the families to increase their wealth, hence contribute to the reduction of unemployment.
EYE will cover 1/3 of the grant scheme provided to the beneficiaries, while whole intervention has potential to increase production and enhancing the path towards more commercial farming in the north of Kosovo.
