Kenan works as a taxi driver. He has been in business for five years and his business and client base are growing steadily. He has developed a good reputation in the community. Recently his vehicle broke down and Kenan was unable to work and generate income for his family. He is requesting a loan to pay for the repair costs and new tires. This loan will help him to be able to continue with his business and hopefully expand into new lines of transportation in Kosovo. He is planning to continue to work hard to improve and expand his business.
Kenan thanks all Kiva lenders for this opportunity!
More information about this loan

By supporting this loan you are helping provide opportunity to marginalized populations.
