Goran
Goran is 34 years old and divorced. Currently he lives in a minority community of Kosovo with his parents. For quite some time, he has been working in an agricultural business growing wheat and corn on his land, and then selling the products in his area in order to make a living. Up until now he has always had to pay others to rent a tractor when he needed to plow and harvest his land. Now he is asking for a loan to purchase his own tractor so that he can cut unnecessary expenses for his business and therefore earn extra income for his family.

Since he is able to support his family through his business, he hopes that this will help them to live with an even a better lifestyle and quality of life. He hopes to keep on making his own living and not having to ask others for money or rely on others for assistance. Goran is very grateful to all of the Kiva lenders!
