Igor's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy men's spring shoes for retail sale.
Igor has been selling men's and women's sports shoes at the local market since 2003. He lives with his wife in an apartment; they are raising a son. Igor owns a minibus which he uses for work. When he started his business, he first helped his mother, then began managing sales himself. He considers the purchase of a means of transportation and the purchase of a retail boutique his greatest successes in business. Igor knows customers' needs very well and his accessible prices always attract new customers. He has two fixed retail spaces which are both well-equipped. Igor plans to invest 50,000 hryvnia (UAH) into the purchase of men's spring shoes. In the near future, he is planning a trip to buy wholesale goods and he will need additional funds for this.
