Alexander's story

Aleksandr is married and has a teenage son named Maxim. Aleksandr sells men's clothes: polo shirts, t-shirts, dress shirts etc. at the local market in the city of Melitopol. He prides himself on the large selection and low prices he is able to offer at his store, which makes his clothes affordable for the middle class consumer. Aleksandr has been working in this business for the last 9 years. He started to sell clothes after encouragement from his relatives. He has currently 30 000 griven worth of inventory and the income form his business is 6000 griven per month.

Aleksandr is planning to use the 15 000 griven credit from KIVA to purchase men's clothing for the fall season and expand his inventory. Aleksandr has always been dreaming to do quality large scale repairs in his apartment and he is planning to use the additional income from the clothing sales to finance his dream.
