Vladimir's story

Vladimir is married and has two adult children. He lives and works in Nikopol. Vladimir trades in man's sportswear. One of his clients suggested that he move his business from the market to a store where his goods do not get worn out and beaten up, and so he did. Vladimir has a spacious shop in a convenient place on a main thoroughfare. In the city, very few people sell such an assortment and quantity of sportswear. In the shop there is an air conditioner, TV, air ionizer, and good lighting. Additionally, there is a great deal of opportunity to pay attention to every single customer. Vladimir has been selling clothes for seven years. He makes 27,000 hryvnias. Vladimir regularly buys new goods to maintain his inventory. The more variety he has, the more he can profit. Vladimir plans to use his 17,500 hryvnia loan to buy track suits, shorts, T-shirts, tennis shoes, and deck shoes. He knows that sportswear promotes a more healthy way of life for youth since many buy clothes for jogging, working in gyms, and skiing. Vladimir plans to expand his shop to display and sell more goods.
