Maxim is married to Irina. He is a businessman from Simferopol. He owns a small hairstyle salon offering different types of services for women clients. Maxim started his business about two years ago. He also owns a second enterprise selling clothing in one of the local retail stores. Currently, he has about $20,000 invested in inventory.
Maxim is very committed to his venture. He has used 10 loans from Nadiya Ukraine to expand his trade and see his business consistently growing. This time Maxim is requesting a 3000 Grivna loan to increase his turnover capital and generate additional income as a result. Maxim is hoping to invest additional income in a purchase of his own apartment where he would move with his wife. Housing question has been a crucial issue for this family and Maxim is hoping to finally see his dream fulfill as they move out of the house of his wife’s parents and start living apart from them as a separate family.
Note: this is a short term seasonal loan that will be repaid in 2 months.
