Владимир – из Хуста, Западная Украина. Он зарабатывает на жизнь торговлей подростковой одеждой и мужским бельем на местном рынке. Владимир арендует контейнеры для торговли, так как своего торгового места у него пока нет. В этой сфере работает уже 7 лет.

Владимир надеется за счет кредита от КИВА в размере 5 000 гривен приобрести дополнительную партию одежды для подростков перед началом нового учебного года в сентябре. Владимир хотел бы больше расширить бизнес со временем, чтобы помогать дочке, которая живет в Киеве, а также улучшить условия проживания своей семьи. Владимир умеет быть настойчивым и выстоять в трудные времена, которых у него в бизнесе было немало, поэтому он уже добился неплохих успехов и продолжает стремиться к всё большим свершениям.
