Advan, 23, is a single man who lives in the southern part of Kosovo with his entire family. He is a very hard worker. He works in a car wash for a very low salary and also owns a business collecting paper packaging and selling the paper for recycling. Advan buys scrap paper from markets and sells it to companies who do recycling. He buys at a cheaper price and then sells for a higher price.

Advan has requested a loan for the first time to buy more scrap paper. The loan will help him to sell more scrap paper, to increase his profit and to secure his future. His goal is to save the money for his future; he hopes to get married in the near future. Advan wants to thank all Kiva lenders!
