Pyotr is married and lives in Zaporozhye, where he operates his own vending store, selling groceries and household chemicals. He has been in this business for 10 years now and, because of his determination and customer-friendly attitude, his venture has been very successful. Currently, he has 50,000 Grivnyas in inventory and his profit amounts to 5,000 Grivnyas a month.
Pyotr currently needs a loan of 10,900 Grivnyas to increase his turnover capital. He believes that this loan will help him re-supply his inventory and encourage more customers to come and shop in his store. Increased sales, in turn, will generate the necessary funds to sustain the business as well as help him meet his family’s needs.
