Vladimir's story

For more than ten years, Vladimir has been selling women's shoes at the market. In the summer, he sells sandals and shoes, in the winter, he sells boots. Vladimir often travels with the shoes to nearby villages, offering his merchandise to those who live there. These trips to meet customers give him a competitive advantage and increase his turnover. Vladimir has requested to receive a loan of 20,000 hryvnia in order to expand his kiosk. This will allow Vladimir to better serve the needs of his customers and increase turnover. With the money, Vladimir hopes to buy a new car, which is necessary for him to make business trips. Vladimir is married. His wife helps him with his business. His children are already grown. He dreams of making enough money to help them obtain their own housing.
