Marko really enjoys his business of selling food to people. For the first time, he is requesting a loan so that he can purchase a fridge, some meat, beverages, and other inventory for his small restaurant. These purchases will help him to better meet the needs of the customers from all communities and he hopes that the loan will help him increase the size of his restaurant, thereby increasing his income and then improving his living conditions.
Marko’s goals are to gather enough money to expand his small restaurant into a big one in the future. He is very happy for the financial support from Kiva lenders!
