Vyacheslav is married and all of his children are grown. He makes a living selling hardware items -- locks, abrasives, heaters and similar items -- at a market in the town of Berdyansk. He enjoys running his business, which he started six years ago and would like to expand.
Vyacheslav is applying for a loan of 10,000 Grivnas to buy more items to sell to his customers. His goal is to increase his income and make further investments in his business. He is a hard-working, entrepreneurial person and believes this loan will help his business to grow further.
