Svetlana is divorced and has one child. She sells curtains and accessories at Image Market in Beregovo city. Her monthly gross income is 20,000 UAH; the profit is about 5,000 UAH per month.
Svetlana started this business 8 years ago. She was lucky to choose this type of goods to sell, because she had very little competition then, and even now the competition is low. This gives Svetlana a good opportunity to make her living. Svetlana is a kind and hard-working person. She treats her clients well and has a desire to develop her business even more.
Svetlana would like to receive a loan of 11,000 UAH to purchase more inventory. Additional capital would allow her to offer a better assortment of curtains and serve even more clients.
