Уже более десяти лет как Владимир продает обувь женскую на рынке. Летом торгует босоножками, туфлями, зимой продает сапоги. Часто Владимир ездит с обувью по близлежащим селам, предлагая товар тем, кто там живет. Такие выезды к клиентам дают ему конкурентное приемущество и увеличивают его оборот.

Владимир просит предоставить ему кредит 20,000 гривен для расширения своего торгового места. Это поможет Владимиру лучше обслуживать своих клиентов и увеличить обороты. На вырученные деньги Владимир надеется купить новый автомобиль, т.к. он нужен ему для поездок по бизнесу.

Владимир женат. Жена помогает ему в бизнесе. Дети Владимира уже взрослые. Он мечтает заработать достаточно денег, чтобы помочь им приобрести собственное жилье.
