Igor Z. and his wife live in Kahovka, in the Kherson region. Their children are grown and live separately. Igor runs a small mobile business selling construction and remodeling supplies in several marketplaces in neighboring small towns. He has been working in this niche of trade for 15 years. Currently, he has 87,000 Grivnas in working capital.
Igor is focused and determined. His experience working in the construction and remodeling spheres helps him to be very organized and efficient in his business. Igor is hoping to see the number of construction sites in the Ukraine increase, which would subsequently stimulate development of his venture. He is seeking a loan of 10,000 Grivnas to purchase additional construction supplies for retail sale.
