Alexander is a talented craftsman with gifted hands.
Prior to starting his business 5 years ago, Alexander was a laminated particle board worker at the furniture factory for 7 years.
However, later he decided to start his own business. He rented out a small room, re-equipped it into a furniture manufacturing facility, and now manufactures cabinet furniture to order. Kitchen furniture is the most wide-spread order. As of today, Alexander already has 2 high-quality wood-working machines that only experienced furniture-makers can afford.
Alexander invests a lot into his business, sets clear objectives and works hard. He asks for a loan of 15,000 hryven to purchase an edge-beveling machine. This machine will help Alexander manufacture furniture of better quality as well as allow him to speed up the manufacturing process.
The additional earnings from the loan will help Alexander buy a new car and, perhaps, build a garage. Alexander intends to develop his business; therefore, he will need the necessary equipment, and he is planning on turning to KIVA for support.

Александр – талантливый мастер, у которого золотые руки. До того, как он открыл свое дело 5 лет назад, Александр 7 лет проработал раскройщиком ламинированного ДСП на мебельной фабрике. Но потом решил работать на себя, арендовал у частного лица небольшое помещение, переоборудовал его под цех и теперь занимается производством корпусной мебели на заказ. Самый распространенный вид заказав со стороны клиентов – мебель для кухни. На данный момент у Александра уже есть 2 качественных станка, которые себе могут позволить только серьезные мебельщики-фабриканты. Он с готовностью вкладывает в свое дело, ясно ставит цели, очень трудолюбив.

Александр обратился за кредитом в 15 000 гривен для того, чтобы приобрести кромкообрабатывающий станок для своего мебельного цеха. Этот станок поможет Александру качественнее и быстрее завершать работу над своими заказами. Дополнительную прибыль Александр планирует вложить в покупку автомобиля и, возможно, постройку гаража. Он намерен развивать производство корпусной мебели, а, значит, ему понадобится еще оборудование и он планирует в дальнейшем пользоваться услугами КИВА.
