Ruslan is married with one child. He lives and works in his home town of Kamenka. Ruslan runs a small car shop selling spare vehicle parts. His shop is conveniently located right downtown Kamenka which makes it a frequently-visited place by numerous car owners. Ruslan business is very prospective. He started out small over 10 years ago. However, today Ruslan already has about 150,000 Grivnyas in inventory. His net profit amounts to 5,000-6,000 Grivnyas a month.
Ruslan is requesting a 17,000 Grivnya loan to buy a batch of winter tires for upcoming winter season. He wanted to invest lending funds into purchase of high quality and durable tires that he knows will sell really well this fall and winter. Additional financial assistance will give Ruslan a chance to choose from a variety of suppliers and purchase the best offered merchandise. One of other business projects Ruslan is thinking about is a grocery store. His wife and he are planning to open one in the future.
