A loan of $1,000 helped purchase inventory.

Boris's story

Boris supports himself and his wife, Ida, by selling items for use in the home that everyone seems to need at one time or another. From matches, lighters and small tools to clocks, nails and glue--if a customer needs something small for use at home, Boris is likely to have it. He tries to maintain a large selection of items, and has developed a good reputation for running a shop where you can find what you need. His kiosk at the central market in Beregovo is in a good location that attracts customers.

Boris and his wife are facing some financial difficulties. Their home was damaged by a small earthquake, and the insurance company did not help them meet the cost of repairs as it should have. Boris is facing much higher out-of-pocket costs to fix the damage, and needs to generate more income from his business as he works to have his home repaired.

Boris has asked for a loan to help purchase new inventory. The type of business he runs experiences high product turnover, and the loan will help him buy a large number of new items to sell.
