Alla is married with two children. She is a market entrepreneur from Belaya Tserkov. Alla sells meat, such as chicken meat, fillets, wings, sausage, etc. She owns two vending locations that basically don’t have any competition. Alla used to sell chicken meat only. However, recently she started selling sausages, too. Alla has been working in this sphere of vending for two years. Her income exceeds 7,000 Grivnyas a month.
Alla is seeking a 15,000 Grivnya loan to purchase a self-contained refrigerator display for a new vending facility. Alla is planning to open her third meat vending kiosk. She needs to equip it with a refrigerator display and stock it with merchandise. Alla believes a good quality refrigerator will keep all her meat fresh and a nice display of meat merchandise will attract potential customers to her kiosk. One of Alla’s long-term plans is to expand her business and eventually have her own retail chain.
