Yelena is married with grown children. She lives and works in Kahovka, in the south-eastern part of Ukraine. Yelena has been in the clothing sales business for 11 years. Just as many other small entrepreneurs at that time, Yelena started her venture because she didn’t have any other way to provide for her family’s needs. Today she has 40,000 Grivnyas in turnover capital.
Yelena has been successful working in this sphere of trade. She says this venture gives her opportunity to support her famil, which makes all the hard work worth the income she is making. This time Yelena is requesting a 12,640 Grivnyas loan to increase her income and to be able to provide for her family in the future as well.
