Tamara's story

Tamara lives in Ljevan with her husband, her daughter, son and daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. Since 1992 she has managed her own café. Tamara’s husband is a musician who doesn't work regular hours, and he often helps Tamara with her business.

When she started her business, Tamara had a small café, but for the past 19 years it has grown as she has reinvested her profits back into her business. For example, Tamara was able to buy the neighboring land to enlarge her business, remodel her café, buy addiitonal equipment for the café, and to buy a car that's used for café business. With the income from her café Tamara has also been able to support her big family,

Tamara’s café is very popular in Ljevan thanks to its cleanliness and her good service. Tamara used her first Kiva-funded loan to buy a projector and screen for her café so she can show music videos in order to attract younger customers. Now Tamara is requesting a loan of 700,000 AND to buy new tables and chairs for her café.
