Roman is married and is a small-business owner in Stryi. He sells a variety of computer hardware and offers computer-related maintenance services. His business is well-known for quality at reasonable prices. He has been running his business for two years and presently has 55,000 Grivnyas in inventory. His net profit amounts to 8,000 Grivnyas a month.
Roman is seeking a loan of 8,400 Grivnyas to purchase additional merchandise, i.e. computer accessories and components (processor units, memory modules, cartridges, etc.) and thus attract potential clientele.
Since computers have become an integral part of basically every Ukrainian home, this type of inventory always remains in high demand, which benefits Roman's business. He is hoping to see his venture grow and expand even further in the future.
