Instead of collecting a 300.000 RSD (around 2800EUR) debt from families who did not pay their electricity and phone bills due to poor financial state, private debt collector Marko Vukicevic from Belgrade did something incredible – he took on their debt himself.
“It all began when, after our call due to debt maturity, a woman came into our office and nearly had a stroke. She managed to explain to us that she and her family are having tough times. Neither her husband nor her children were employed, and on that day their refrigerator stopped working. She was desperate. That’s when I decided to take on part of her debt – said Vukicevic to Belgrade daily Blic.
He is hoping that this gesture will not remain the only one, and that colleagues will follow his example.
