Ivan is married with a 13-year-old son. He lives in Ivano-Frankivsk and runs a retail sale business. Ivan owns two vending kiosks and sells footwear, handbags and purses in the central market of his home town. He offers his inventory at reasonable prices which attracts a lot of potential customers to his business. Ivan has been in this trade for nineteen years. Currently, his income amounts to 7,000 Grivnyas a month.
Ivan is seeking a loan of 12,000 Grivnyas to purchase one hundred pairs of footwear to increase the assorted merchandise he offers for sale in his kiosks.
