Besim is a married man from Kosovo. He has been selling electrical equipment for more than twenty years, specifically electrical boxes to stabilize electricity.

In Kosovo, electricity is often a problem as power outages and surges are common, and people can be without electricity in extreme conditions, such as cold, snowy winters and very hot summers, for hours or even a day at a time.

Besim is asking for a loan in order to buy more electrical boxes to stabilize electricity for people, as both the need and demand for these boxes are great.

The increased sales will generate a reserve for Besim to eventually start his own business, which is his goal.

He is very happy for this support, and he very much appreciates all KIVA lenders!
