Nadezhda is single. She is a market entrepreneur from Pavlograd. Nadezhda sells perfumes, cosmetics, personal care products, etc. in the central marketplace of her home town. Today Nadezhda owns a container-store. Container-stores are large metal shipping containers often used for overseas shipping. They can be used for storage, but make an ideal shelter for market vendors to sell merchandise from. Nadezhda started her enterprise only 2 years ago. However, she has already invested about 26,000 Grivnyas in this business. Her proceeds are about 16,000 Grivnyas a month.
Nadezhda is seeking a loan of 10,000 Grivnyas to purchase additional merchandise and increase her working capital as a result. Nadezhda rents an apartment and lives on her own separately from her parents. Increased inventory turnover will generate the necessary funds to sustain her business as well as meet her daily needs.
