A loan of $1,475 helped to pay for materials needed for his kitchen.


Jovica's story

Jovica is 50 years old, married, and a father of a 19-year-old daughter. He, his wife, and daughter live in a minority community in Kosovo.

Jovica is a very hard-working man, but his situation has changed dramatically after the war, leaving him without a job. He is lucky that now he receives a pension from the electrical company that he used to work for, together with his wife, before the war, but it is not enough to provide his family with enough and adequate income. He has tried all possible ways to survive and provide himself with a stable income, but has not had much success.

For the first time, Jovica is now requesting a loan to pay for materials needed for his kitchen. His goal is to find a job since he hopes to have more income in the future. He appreciates this help!
