Ludmila is married with a grown son. She lives in Novomoskovsk and runs a construction supply store called "Construction Fittings" that is located in the central marketplace. She doesn't own the facility but has to rent it which increases her business expenses. Her rented facility is spacious enough and is located in a busy part of the marketplace which always keeps her place buzzing with customers. She has been working in this sphere of business for three years.
Ludmila is seeking a loan of 15,000 Grivnyas to purchase more construction fittings, metalware, tools and instruments to diversify the assorted merchandise she offers for sale in her store. This loan will help her obtain a better variety of inventory for the busy summer/fall reconstruction and remodeling season in the Ukraine.
Ludmila's husband is actively helping her run the business. Ludmila is an optimist. She thanks God for opportunities He opened for her business and for the success she has achieved with it.
