Vitalyi B. is single. He lives in the town of Tlumach in the Ivano-Frankivsk region.
Vitalyi runs a service station in downtown Tlumach where he rents a facility for business purposes. His maintenance station offers running gear repairs, tire vulcanization and wheel geometry services. Vitalyi has one hired employee working for him at the station. He started the venture two years ago. His current monthly income amounts to 12,000 UAH.
Vitalyi is requesting a 20,000 UAH loan to purchase two automobiles to break down for spare parts. He is planning to sell the dismantled spare parts at a good price and thus generate additional income as a result. One of Vitalyi’s dreams is to do a major makeover in his two-room apartment and construct his own service station in the outskirts of his home town close to a local tourist complex.
