This borrower is named Gora. He was born in 1956 and is married and the father of 7 children. Gora is engaged in transport and has a truck of the brand Ivéco which looks on first glance to be in bad shape but is in fact an all-terrain vehicle which brings its owner a good deal of satisfaction. With this vehicle, Gora transports charcoal which he delivers to bakeries for use in baking bread. He makes a good deal of profit out of his transport, since he is the only one doing this work in the area.

Gora doesn't just stick to this job; he also fattens cows and sheep, and sells horses and animal feed. With the loan he is planning to renew the motor of his truck so that it will be much more effective.

He is responsible for the needs of his family. In future, he would like to start up a farm and concentrate all his effort on this sector.
