Victoria has a small kiosk at the Pervomaisky market in Nikopol, Ukraine where she sells a variety of women’s clothing. She has been in business for two years. The additional income from her business has been a real help to her and her husband, Yuri. It has enabled them to have some work done to improve their home and they have been able to save some money to help their 15 year old daughter when she enters college. Victoria has developed a reputation as a kind and honest entrepreneur. She has benefited from her relationship with “Nadiya Ukraine”, and we look forward to continuing to assist her with her business.
Victoria has requested a loan for $500 to purchase new inventory for her kiosk. One of her goals is to broaden the assortment of products she has for sale. This loan will give her additional funds to pursue her goals and grow her business even further.
