Irina is divorced and has one child. She owns a small business selling thread and other supplies for knitting and sewing. Irina started this business 4 years ago when she was left without a source of income. Today, her profit is about 6,000 Grivnas a month.
Irina would like to borrow 8,000 Grivnas to purchase more stock. She hopes that a large assortment of goods will attract even more clients and increase sales.
