Fitim is a 30-year-old recently married male. He lives in a small village of Kosovo with his wife and his entire family. Fitim works as a security guard but earns a low salary. To cover the family expenses, he is also working with some family members in their agricultural business.
Using a tractor, they cultivate and maintain the properties of others in order to generate income. Until now, the family had used one of the uncle’s tractors, which was considered common property, but as he has recently separated from them, Fitim has remained without the use of a tractor. Fitim is requesting a loan in order to purchase a tractor. With the help of this loan, he can expand the number and frequency of the work he completes; thereby, generating a larger income for his family.
He appreciates all of Kiva's lenders!
