Vasyl's story

Vasil was born in Ivano-Frankivsk. He makes his living driving passengers around the Ukraine. He's married with two children: an eleven-year-old son, and a one-year-old daughter. He has no trouble getting business. He has regular customers and an excellent reputation. He's been in the business for twelve years and makes 5000 hryvni. At present he uses his own car, a 2006 Opel Astra. It's in great condition.

Vasil needs a loan of 10,000 hryvni to install a fourth generation fuel injection system so his car can run on LP gas, and also do some routine repairs. By converting his car to LP gas, he'll lower his fuel expenses and increase profits. Vasil provides the primary means of transportation for his clients' families. Earlier he worked for the police, but he left that and got into driving passengers, since there were no other options for supporting his family. Vasil's biggest dream is give his children a chance for highest possible education when the time comes.
