Galina is a small entrepreneur from Drogobych. She runs a retail business selling newspapers and magazines. Moreover, she owns three additional vending locations selling office supplies and toys. One of the best attractions of her business is reasonable wholesale prices that make her business competitive in the market.
Galina launched her trade about seven years ago. Back then she was one of the first vendors working with this type of merchandise. Publications sales which is her major business trend is a specific business with a non-standard work day. It requires close and accurate management of copies for sale, and up-front payment for all printed matter. Galina has to calculate everything very thoroughly to make sure printed issues are not wasted causing her unexpected losses.
Galina is a Christian. She always adds a little word of blessing as her customers buy from her. This always helps her have personal interaction, build a relationship, and establish a bond. This time Galina is requesting a loan of 14,500 Gryvnyas to re-stock her inventory.
