Now Fatmira has made over 200 hats and exported them to Ecuador, U.S. and Spain; three more local women are also involved in their manufacture. Soon a little hat shop will open in town.
Fatmira’s husband, Georghi, can only get low-paid seasonal work, so they’re still not enough money to support them and their three children. Klara and Einar also trained Georghi in starting and running a micro-business so that the couple could work together year round.
Both couples thought hard to come up with a new venture for Fatmira and Georghi. They were feeling very discouraged when, according to Klara, God gave them the idea of starting a project making jam. Now Fatmira and Georghi make different jams and sell them successfully.
"All my life I have been asking God why I can’t make anything work out well, why all my life is a failure," cried Fatmira. "But now I am sure that He is answering my questions. He is with us—it is simply a miracle that my micro-business is working!"
Klara has had opportunities to share the truth of God with this couple. Fatmira is especially open to starting a relationship with Jesus as her Saviour and Lord. Pray that God would meet her spiritual needs too.
