He believes that the opening of the food shop in his area will be profitable for him because there are many demands in his area. He is a very hardworking and ambitious man.

Beqir has many plans for his business, but for the time being, only wants to gather enough capital to expand it. He is very happy for the financial support that Kiva lenders gives him, because this way he is certain of making progress in his work. He really appreciates this support!
