Olga's story

Olga is a widow with two adult children. When her husband died working in a coal mine, she needed to generate income herself to raise her children. Olga moved to another town and started a small business selling clothing. She has been in this business now for eight years. The business is working well, she has a good location and many customers who keep returning.

Olga would like to purchase a second location for her business. She needs to borrow 10,000 UAH to do so. She is going to create a workplace for her daughter to allow her to generate income for her own family.
