Raisa is married with a teenage son, Nikita. She runs a public cafeteria in her home town of Mukachevo, Western Ukraine. Raisa’s pricing policy is reasonable and meals are always fresh and nutritious. She launched this enterprise only a year ago and has already invested about 100,000 Grivnyas in the business.
Raisa is requesting a loan of 10,000 Grivnyas to design and build a small children’s playground next to her cafeteria. This feature will be an additional attraction for her business, bringing in families by offering a well-equipped play area for kids. Raisa understands the responsibility and wants to make sure the playground conforms to all the required safety standards. We believe the loan will be an reasonable investment in the further development of this enterprise.
