Viktor is married, has two daughters and lives with his family in the town of Kahovka, in the Kherson region. Viktor is a cobbler who offers shoe-repair services in the local market. He launched his own small enterprise 15 years ago when his family was faced with financial challenges. Ever since that day, he has expanded his business and now produces profits every month.
Viktor has applied for a 15,000 Grivnya loan to buy supplies. He enjoys his work because it involves helping people and it is easy to see the results of what he does. He hopes that his enterprise will continue to bring him a stable income and allow him to meet his family’s needs.
