Mariya is married with two grown sons. She lives and works in Melitopol. Mariya sells clothing merchandise. All of the merchandise is of very high quality, which draws customers back for shopping from Mariya again and again. Mariya is very friendly with all her customers. She always listens to their preferences very carefully, trying to best serve each one of them. She has been in this business for ten years. Currently, she has 80,000 Grivnyas worth of inventory. Her income amounts to 10,000 Grivnyas a month.
Mariya is seeking a loan of 12,000 Grivnyas to restock her inventory. Diversified merchandise will help her please the different tastes of her broad clientele. Moreover, it will help her generate additional income and open a second vending location as a result. Mariya has proved to be a responsible borrower. She is an entrepreneur with integrity and prudence. We believe she will use the current loan to the benefit of her clothing sales venture.
