Andryi is married and has two children, a 14-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter. He is the only breadwinner in his family and has made a living as a taxi driver for the last three years. Currently, he offers transportation services to many parts of the Ukraine. He is a very determined, hard-working man who sometimes puts in a 24-hour day. He currently makes about 4,000 Grivnyas a month.
Andryi is requesting a loan of 7,500 Grivnyas to remodel his vehicle, improve its efficiency and allow it to run more smoothly and quietly. This will not only help his cut his costs, but also reduce the environmental impact of his vehicle.
