Vladimir's story

Vladimir is an entrepreneur from Belaya Tserkov. He has been selling men's shoes at the central market for five years. Shoes that he offers to customers is always of high quality, and his add-on is not high. Recently, Vladimir bought a kiosk and now no longer needs to spend extra money on leasing a space. There was a time when Vladimir traveled to work in Russia, but then realized that it is better to work in this country and focused on developing his own business. He hopes to use the Kiva loan of 20 000 hryvnia to buy 40-50 pairs of winter shoes and expand his merchandise selection prior to customers coming to the market in search of durable and quality shoes. Vladimir wants to continue running this business, earn a living and provide his family with all of the necessities.
