Yaroslav's story

Yaroslav is married and has three children. He lives in the village of Koshelovo and owns a store called "ABC" located near the main road.
Some time ago,Yaroslav's wife bought a house and restructured in for a business. Abut one year ago, Yaroslav opened his shop. Despite having a fledgling business, he has already achieved a great reputation among the townspeople and boasts regular customers.
Yaroslav needs a loan of 15,000 grivnas in order to stock up on goods before the holidays. In advance of Christmas and New Year's Eve, Ukrainians begin to spend lavishly on grocieries, therefore Yaroslav wants to be ready to meet increased demand for sweets, meat products, etc.
Yaroslav is full of ideas on how to expand his business. Because his store is spacious and has a separate entrance, he could rent out part of his building or, possibly, open something himself when his business allows it. One idea consists of opening a veterinary clinic, whose services would be in great demand since animal breeding is a common way to make a living for many people in that part of the country.
