Milosav
Milosav, forty-two, is single and lives in a minority community. Since he is single he is able to really focus on his business and has much time to invest into doing this. For many years he had been operating his own business, a boutique, however two years ago he changed the type of business he wanted to own and he opened a fast food shop. It is located near a school and he usually serves students. Milosav is very busy because he makes delicious food and has many return and regular customers.

He is now in a need of a loan in order to buy inventory and to do some renovations in the front of his fast food store. The loan will help him to make more income. In the future he hopes to expand his business even further and he wants to thank all Kiva lenders.
