Valeryi offers taxi services in Ivano-Frankivsk. He has been working in this sphere of business for 2 years. Valeryi admits he has benefited a lot from financial assistance he has received from Nadiya Ukraine. Currently, his business has grown to the point where he receives about US$ 40-50 daily.
Valeryi is hoping to buy a better and trendier vehicle in the future to offer more high-class services to his clients. At this point he is only saving some money to make his dream come true. Valeryi thinks this 5000 Grivna loan will help him move closer to the fulfillment of his plans. He is hoping to spend this amount on painting the body of his vehicle to give it a fresh look. Some day when he saves enough, he is hoping to buy a newer but affordable vehicle.
