Alexander is married with a three-year-old son. He lives and works in Kahovka. Alexander sells men’s footwear in a local marketplace. He started this business six years ago. Currently, his turnover capital amounts to 25,000 Grivnyas. His net profit amounts to 8,000 Grivnyas.
Alexander is requesting a 15,000 Grivnya loan to increase his footwear merchandise and re-stock his inventory. Since he does not charge high prices, he has many loyal clients who trust him and keep coming to his kiosk. The loan will give Alexander’s business a good economic boost and will help meet the demand this spring and summer season.
