Mariya is married. She runs a small business selling women’s clothing in the central market in Vinogradovo, Ukraine. She has been in business for over ten years. She has an enterprising spirit and is very hard-working and persevering. The success she has achieved in her business is a direct result of her efforts and commitment to her work. Presently, Mariya has 25,000 Grivnyas in inventory. Her income is about 3,000 Grivnyas each month.
Mariya would like to obtain a loan of 9,000 Grivnyas to open a new vending facility and stock it with necessary merchandise. Wide selection of clothing items will help her better present the benefits of her products and services to her customers. Mariya tries to avoid copying the inventory of other market vendors. She has built a good reputation for the quality of her products and support services. We believe that her constant quest to improve her business and services will help her achieve continued success and enable her to repay this loan on time.
