Jeton is married and has two children eight months and five years old. He lives in Kosovo, in a small village. Jeton earns his living by working in a private company as a painter, but with a very low salary. Jeton's work is very important to him as he is the only one in the family who has a job and is able to generate income and provide for them.

Now he is planning to start his own freelance painting business. For this reason he needs a business start up loan. He is asking for a loan in the amount of 2000 Euros so he can purchase a machine and other supplies. Jeton is hoping that because he has a lot of experience and a customer base from previous jobs that his business will be successful quickly and he will start with much business immediately. He is very optimistic that he will have much success and continue to increase his clientele and business demands. It is in this way that he can improve his living conditions and provide a decent life for his family. He wants to thank all lenders!
