Kostya decided to leave his previous job as a paid driver in order to be self-employed. Like many other entrepreneurs, he recognized the benefits of working for himself and wanted to have his own business. He has been driving his own taxi now for three years. Through a taxi dispatching company, he offers transportation services around the city of Ivano-Frankivsk or further distances if required. Kostya makes about 120-130 Ukrainian Hrivna per day which is around $26 dollars. His business is the main source of income for himself and his wife, Victoria.

Kostya has requested a loan for $1000 to help with some car repairs. This is his third loan from Nadiya Ukraine. He appreciates the availability of financial services which helps with large expenses and adds stability to his business. We look forward to many more opportunities to assist Kostya in developing and running his business.
