Yuryi is married and has two daughters who are 19 and 13 years old. They live in Vasilyevka. Yuryi sells groceries from his little food store. His vending location is well known for good prices that are lower than market prices. Yuryi knows his customers’ preferences and always offers them only good quality groceries. He has been in the grocery trade for about 7 years. His business has been marked with consistent stability. Currently, his gross income is about 12,000 Hryvnia a month.
Yuryi is running a neat small grocery store. He is hoping to invest a loan of 7,000 Hryvnia in additional merchandise which will help him increase his turnover capital eventually. Yuryi has a vision for the expansion of his trade and we believe it will be helpful in his entrepreneurial endeavors. The loan will help Yuryi to persist, take small steps at a time and achieve success which we think will be absolutely inevitable.
