Boris is 63 years old. He lives with his wife in a private house in Beregovo. He sells various home products in his kiosk located at the central market. Boris has been in this business for 5 years. The good location of his kiosk, large assortment of goods, and low prices bring many customers in. Moreover, the business of selling small home products does not have seasonal ups and downs. It enables Boris to have a stable income.
Boris would like to borrow 6,500 Ukranian Hryvna to increase the assortment of his goods. He came to the conclusion that a larger assortment would enable more people to purchase what they need at one location. Thus the assortment is the key factor for his business.
