Galina K. is single and has three children. She sells various agricultural products such as seeds and fertilizer. Her income is about 4,000 Ukrainian grivna (UAH).
Galina has been in this business for 10 years. She used to go to Russia to make her living, but it was difficult for her family. That is why Galina decided to try her own business. She rented a kiosk at a good location and began her sales business. Galina was able to create a good pricing policy that attracted new clients and kept returning clients. Galina's business grew, and today it is the only source of her income.
Galina would like to borrow 10,000 UAH to purchase fertilizer. Her goal is to increase sales and make additional income.
