Alexander is married with two children. He lives in Vasilyevka, the south-eastern part of Ukraine, where he runs a grocery kiosk selling noodles, sugar, oil, and grits in the local market. In the business for 12 years, he can boast competitive prices that help him find and keep his loyal clientele.
Alexander is seeking a loan of 9,500 Grivnyas to increase his turnover capital. He has a family to provide for and works hard to meet all of their needs including saving for his kids’ college. One of the biggest advantages of his small enterprise is his own truck which makes transportation efficient.
