Farmers mean business

Hysni Demiri from the village of Zhelino near Tetovo has been a dairy farmer since he finished elementary school at the age of 15. "My family have always owned cows," he explains, "So, naturally, I left school to work with them. I like the work and it's family tradition."

 

Despite Hysni's experience and skills, however, the dairy business has changed and farmers like himself and his family have had to face the challenge of formalizing and regulating their businesses more strictly. "Because we weren't a registered company we couldn't sell our milk to producers," says Hysni, "So regulating the business was a big part of why I applied for the Self-Employment Programme."
