Goran is 37 years old, married and a father of two children, 1 and 5. They all live in a vulnerable community. For more than 10 years Goran has worked as a painter, painting the houses of others. His work is in demand and now he has expanded his painting business to technical construction and insulation work.
He is a very hard-working man who wants to improve his family's condition. He serves all nationalities that live in Kosovo regardless of ethnicity or religion. Goran now is in need of a loan to buy materials for insulation and tools for his work. This loan will help him to raise his income. He hopes in the future to hire another employee to help him because he can’t meet a lot of demands working by himself.
His goal is to increase his budget. He wants to thank all Kiva lenders for this support!
