Igor is married, and he has one daughter. He is a businessman from Zaporozhye. Igor sells sports footwear in the Yubileynyi market. His vending spot is well-known in the market because there are few other locations with the same type of merchandise and because the prices Igor offers for his products are very reasonable. He has been in this business for several years. Currently, Igor has about $2,000 worth of merchandise in inventory, and his gross income is approximately $1,200 per month.

Igor is very industrious and enterprising: he is focused on his business, and he is determined to expand his vending facility. Therefore, he is currently seeking a loan for 5,000 Grivnas ($1,050) so that he may increase his assortment of sports footwear and thereby grow his business. With the expected increase in sales and profits from the loan, he hopes to open an additional vending kiosk and to improve his family's standard of living.
