Avdush's story

Avdush is twenty-three years old. He is living in a southern part of Kosovo in the Ashkali community. He is married and has three children between the ages of three and eight years old. Two of the children attend school currently.

Avdush works as a lumberjack, cutting wood. He provides woodcutting services to those in his community in order to provide heat during the cold weather. He had originally started working together with his uncle; however he has now managed to work by himself. As a result of separating from his uncle, Aydush needs a loan in order to purchase a saw for himself. Through his work he helps his family and gives them everything they need. He is requesting a loan to buy a woodcutting machine.

This loan will help to improve his business dramatically and, with the winter months and cold approaching, he will have a higher amount of demands and increase in the need for his services, therefore raising the income for his family. Aydush hopes to generate more income and secure a better life and education for his children. He appreciate all Kiva lenders!
