Olena is married with one child. She sells men's clothing at one of the open markets in Melitopol city. She has been in this business for 10 years. Her growing experience and the constant demand for the type of goods she sells motivated Olena to start a second location. It will not only increase her sales and profit, but give some one a job and a stable income. Olena is requesting to borrow 13,900 UAH. She has used business loans before and considers them very helpful.
