Marko's story

Marko is a 27-year-old married male from Kosovo, currently living in a minority community. He has one daughter, who is three years old, and his wife is a housewife and stay-at-home mom. They are expecting another baby soon. Marko has been the owner of a small restaurant for one year now. He makes breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, which includes kebabs and soups. He usually works from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm everyday. His customers belong to all nationalities that live in his community in Kosovo.

Marko really enjoys his business of selling food to people. For the first time, he is requesting a loan so that he can purchase a fridge, some meat, beverages, and other inventory for his small restaurant. These purchases will help him to better meet the needs of the customers from all communities and he hopes that the loan will help him increase the size of his restaurant, thereby increasing his income and then improving his living conditions.

Marko’s goals are to gather enough money to expand his small restaurant into a big one in the future. He is very happy for the financial support from Kiva lenders!
