Lidia is 61 years old, is divorced, and lives with her son and his family.
Lidia started her own business when she was 50 years old. She sells cosmetics and small home products at the open market. She has a booth that closes so that she does not need to take her inventory back and forth every day any more.
Lidia's goal is to help her son's family financially and improve their living conditions. She would like to borrow 9,000 UAH to increase her inventory. This is her second micro-loan from HOPE.
