Milos is a 27-year-old, single man who lives with his entire family in a minority community. He works as a waiter in a restaurant. Also, six months ago, he was able to save enough of his earnings to open his own gaming center for Sony PlayStation. In Kosovo, this type of business is very popular and has much demand from the younger generations. As a result, he expects much success.

Now Milos wants to buy more gaming consoles and is in need of a loan to purchase some. His goal is to save enough money to open a larger business, which would enable him to become completely independent so he no longer needs to work at the restaurant before he gets married. He really appreciates this help!

More information about this loan

By supporting this loan you are helping provide opportunity to marginalized populations.
