Peter's story

Peter is married and has two adult children. Peter is from Ivano-Frankivsk. Since childhood, he has had "golden hands" and was able to make anything from wood. At another time, Peter worked as a driver, expediter at a spirits plant. Then, after taking his friend's advise, he started his own business. Peter has been involved in making furniture out of chipboard to-order for seven years. He always has work orders due to having loyal customers and producing quality work. Currently, his monthly income is 5,000 hryvnia. Peter has one hired worker. Having a means of transportation (a 1999 Gazel passenger van) also helps a lot in the business. Peter plans to invest a loan in the sum of 8,000 hryvnia into a purchase of necessary materials for making furniture, specifically purchasing chipboard and furniture accessories. In the near future, Peter hopes to buy a new passenger, so that it is easier for him to meet with clients. Peter loves his family very much and invests a lot into the well-being of his relatives. One of the interesting facts could be that recently Peter's daughter won a prize at a world championship in track and field (200 meter run and a 4x100 meter relay).
