Ganna is a widow. She lives in Vinogradovo and runs her small venture there. She started her business selling cosmetics and perfumes 10 years ago. Low competition and high market demand have enabled rapid growth in the business. Presently, Ganna has about 50,000 Grivnyas in her inventory. Her income amounts to 5,000 Grivnyas a month.
Ganna is a hard-worker. She has proven to be a prudent borrower, as she never asks for a bigger loan that she can pay back. Lending services in combination with her perseverance, trustworthiness and responsibility have helped to guarantee success in her business. Ganna is seeking a loan of 6,500 Grivnyas to increase her working capital. She would like to purchase assorted cosmetics at wholesale prices to re-sell them in her store. Ganna’s long-term goal is the continued expansion of her business.
