Goran is 30 years old, married, and has two children, ages three and six. His wife is working as a journalist. Three months ago Goran started his own business. He opened a restaurant. He sells mostly grilled meat. He has a lot of experience, because for a long time he used to work for others, then after that he worked as a partner, and now he managed to open his own restaurant as a owner. In his restaurant in addition to the Serbian community he also serves Albanians and other communities who live in Kosovo. He really enjoys what he does, since he has always liked to cook. He has many plans for his business, but for the time being, only wants to gather enough capital to expand it.

The borrower is requesting the loan in order to buy meat for his restaurant. Goran believes that the loan will help him to have more customers because he will have enough products to prepare different foods. In the future he hopes to hire another employee. His goal is to improve the living conditions for his family.

Goran is very happy for the financial support that Kiva gives him, because this way he is certain of making progress in his work. He is very grateful.

More information about this loan

This loan will support the economic aspirations of minority people in Kosovo. Roma people and ethnic Serbians have historically faced a tremendous amount of hardship in Kosovo, and are still socioeconomically and politically vulnerable. During the 1998-1999 war, the fighting displaced 250,000 people. Among those displaced were an estimated 80-90% of the region’s Roma population.

By supporting this loan you are helping provide opportunity to marginalized populations.
