Anatolyi’s story
Anatolyi has been managing a small company that makes coffins and gravestones. Anatolyi started working in his mother's company that focused on providing funeral services. Two years ago, he decided to open his own business and began to focus exclusively on coffins and gravestones. He always does quality work. Anatolyi works around the clock, even taking calls at night. Anatolyi is divorced and lives in a studio apartment that he just purchased a month ago. 

Anatolyi needs a sum of 50,000 hryvnia to buy stone for making gravestones since now, seasonally the raw material always drops in price. Anatolyi thinks that now is a good time to invest money into buying the material and saving on the cost.
