Stepan, his wife and one-year-old daughter live in Beregovo in the west of Ukraine. Stepan produces and distributes advertising. His office is conveniently located in the city centre. He's been in this business for four years. Even after new competition appeared two years ago, Stepan's professionalism has allowed him to maintain his brand to this day. Stepan's current monthly income is slightly above 5000 hryvnia. With the help of this loan from Kiva, he hopes to purchase a large-format printer and to install windows in his office. The printer will expand the range of services that Stepan's company offers. The new windows will improve the insulation of the workspace, plus Stepan will be able to use them for additional advertisement.

Stepan was educated in Hungary. He values high quality in his work and in the services he offers. His dream is to reach the European level of advertising services and to keep the bar high in the future.

В этом бизнесе он проработал уже 4 года. Два года назад у него появились конкуренты, но, тем не менее, его профессионализм помогает ему держать марку и по сей день. На данный момент доход Степана немного превышает 5 000 гривен.

За счет полученного от КИВА кредита Степан надеется приобрести широкоформатный принтер и установить окна в своем офисе. Закупка широкоформатного принтера поможет увеличить разновидности услуг, которые Степан предоставляет в своей фирме. Новые вставленные окна позволят улучшить теплоизоляцию рабочего помещения, а также на них Степан сможет разместить дополнительную рекламу. Степан получил образование в Венгрии. Он ценит высокое качество в работе и предоставляемых услугах. Его мечта – достичь европейского уровня рекламных услуг и держать планку на высоком уровне и в будущем.
