Boban, 41, is married and has three children. Boban and his family live in a village in a minority community in the southern part of Kosovo. At this time, Boban is the only one in the family working and supporting them all. In order to do this best, he is starting his own agricultural business working the land with a tractor. This type of job is very well paid in his area and is very much in demand.

Boban is asking for a loan to buy a tractor and hopes to expand his business even further in the future. His goal is to improve the living conditions of his family, and he is grateful to all Kiva lenders for helping him achieve this.
