Natalya runs a small business selling women's clothing at the central market in Kherson. She has been in this business for four years. During this time, she has learned that there is a large and constant demand for the items she sells. She also learned that, to be successful in sales, one needs to have a large variety and good client service. She feels this is something she can do well.
Natalya, her husband Andrei, and their 12-year-old son, Daniel, live in a small apartment. Both her son and her husband support her in her business.
Natalya would like to borrow 13,700 Grivnas to increase her assortment of the goods that she sells. She hopes to make additional profit and spend it on current family needs.
