Oksana is an entrepreneur from Korolyovo, where she sells toys in the central market. Oksana’s vending facility is located right in the center of the marketplace which is always busy with potential customers. Oksana launched this small enterprise three years ago. Currently, she has 35,000 Grivnyas in inventory. Her income amounts to 4,000 Grivnyas a month.
Oksana is seeking a loan of 12,000 Grivnyas to increase her turnover capital. She wants to purchase a variety of children’s toys and games to restock her merchandise this holiday season and boost her sales as a result of increased customer demand before Christmas and New Year’s. Eventually Oksana is hoping to open one more vending facility in the same market and further develop her business.
