The Piaza (outdoor market) in the southern Moldovan city of Cahul is a colorful and lively scene. Among the many vendors working in booths and kiosks is Tatiana, greeting customers with a warm smile and enthusiastic showing of her products. A mother of three and a natural salesperson, she began selling clothing and hats about one and a half years ago and now works with one employee to meet customer demand for the goods she imports from the Ukraine. Her business has been going so well that she wants to expand and open a separate small store on the fringe of the market to capture a new segment of the market. Tatiana has been noticing the recent trend in Moldova of increasing popularity of leather bags and purses, both for men and women, and wants to take advantage by stocking these items. She needs a loan to buy goods and to cover initial operating costs of her new venture.
