Yuryi is a married father with a 5-year-old child. Yuryi offers ceremonial services and sells ceremonial inventory in his home town. He has been in this business for 5 years. His turnover capital is about 30,000 UAH and his net profit exceeds 5,000 Grivnas a month. One of the specific characteristics of his business is high turn-around of inventory.
Yuryi is very focused and determined. He is grateful for the loans he has received from “Nadiya Ukraine” which have helped the expansion of his business. Today, Yuryi is requesting a loan of 12,500 UAH to purchase additional raw materials to manufacture funeral wreaths, e.g. sham flowers, wire and ribbons. The loan will be beneficial for Yuryi’s business by keeping it competitive and promoting further growth so that it will continue to provide necessary income for his family.
