Dragan
Dragan is 35 years old and married with two children, a boy and a girl ages 4 and 7 years old. Currently only one of them is attending school. They live in a minority community of Kosovo. He works hard to improve the living conditions and future for his children.

In an effort to be able to provide a better life, Dragan has been managing his own cafe business, a dream come true for him. In this way, he has been able to provide for his family, who he loves very much, and even work alongside his wife who helps him run his business. He started with a small coffee bar and now has managed to expand by taking loans as a regular customer of KosInvest. His business is now open from early morning until very late night as he is quite popular and has many customers all day long. Primarily his customers are the younger generation who has a good time drinking coffee and getting together socially.

This time, Dragan is in need of a loan to purchase two more freezers, as well as tables, chairs, and some other materials for his cafe. He believes that these items are necessary to better meet the needs of his customers and thereby increase his business and profit even more. Eventually he would like to be able to hire another employee to help him and his wife.

Dragan promises to pay his loan on time and wants to thank all Kiva lenders.
