Dusan is a 20-year-old single male. He lives in a minority community. He works hard with his agricultural machine on agricultural land belonging to other people in his area. Dusan has had a lot of experience working on the land for many years. He is in need of buying another tractor to work on the land of others. In this way, according to him, he can earn a lot of income. In his village there is a very high demand for people to work on the land with a tractor and they always pay for this service.

Now Dusan decided for the first time to request a loan in order to buy a tractor. The loan will help him to earn an income for living expenses. He hopes in the future to expand his business to buy more tractors and to hire employees to work for him. His goal is to save money for his future and to get married. He wants to thank all Kiva lenders who are helping him to start his business!
