Facts about Kosovo

With a multi-ethnic population and a long history of conflict, Kosovo is the poorest country in Europe. High unemployment has forced many Kosovars to migrate, while others have tried to create their own jobs in the informal economy. At 73 percent, unemployment among youths 15 to 25 years old is the worst in the world.

FINCA Kosovo operates multi-ethnic Village Banks that play a vital role in easing ethnic tensions between Serbs and ethnic Albanians. Because Kosovo's society is largely Muslim, male-dominated and clan-based, women have fewer economic and employment opportunities. FINCA Kosovo is the only microfinance institution in the country that offers business start-up loans to both women and men. It offers an array of credit products, including individual, solidarity group, local currency and rural group loans.
