My name is Marina. I’m married with three children and four grandchildren. My husband and I wanted to build a future for our family in Germany. After three years though, we came back to Serbia. Thanks to the support I've been given I've been able to set up my own business here.
Our life in Serbia was very precarious before we moved to Germany. My husband worked as a day labourer on construction sites and I earned some money as a harvester. We wanted to start afresh somewhere else, so we went to Germany – although we didn’t have a future there. We came back to Serbia voluntarily, because I wanted to spare us and my children from deportation.
