Sergei's story

Sergei is married and has two grown children. He has a household products store in the town of Melitopol. One can always find a varied assortment of cleaning supplies at affordable prices at his store, which continues to attract new customers. Sergei started his business 17 years ago. Since then, his business grew significantly, and he was even able to purchase his own store. Sergei plans to use the 20 000 hryvnia loan to buy an additional inventory of household cleaning supplies, especially toothpaste, laundry detergent, soap, dish washing liquid, cleaning supplies and such, for a subsequent sale at his store. Together with his wife, who actively helps Sergei in this business, and selling at the central city market, they plan to further develop their business and earn a stable income to support their family.
