Nebojsa
Nebojsa is a 48-year-old divorced father of two children who are 12 and 14 years old. He is employed by a water system company as a driver and makes only enough to pay for his daily expenses. Although the children live with their mother, he visits them often and currently is living alone. The house that he lives in is very old and because of the lack of money, he has never managed to renovate the toilette, which is in very bad condition. Now, he is requesting a loan in order to do general renovations to the toilette so that he can improve his living environment and standards. He is very grateful to the lenders for this opportunity.
