Roman's story

Roman is married. He is a small-scale businessman from Novyi Rozdil in the Stryi region. Roman sells men’s clothing in the local market called Staryi Rinok (“Old Market”). He has been in this business for 10 years. Presently, he has 20,000 Grivnyas of gross income.

Roman’s enthusiasm and the relationships he has built with his customers show that he is doing what he does best – cheerfully serving others. He has created a loyal base of customers who will always try to stop by and purchase from his kiosk. Roman is an energetic entrepreneur who looks forward to what the future holds with much optimism.

Roman is requesting a loan of 10,200 Grivnyas to purchase a variety of men’s clothing items in bulk.
