By that time I had been running the online store for a couple of years, selling all sorts of goods: clothes, accessories, cheaper electronics and so on. We were making ends meet, the wages and the taxes were being paid, in some years we even managed to earn a profit, but on the whole it was just a job, not a proper business. The best time for us was always the Christmas season, when people tend to spend more than usual. To grow the business, last year I decided to fill the warehouse by December. The company borrowed the necessary funds from Evergreen. The monthly interest was about 4%, but the subsequent profit surpassed that and put a big smile on my face. If you want to grow, you must take chances.
