Ulyana is single. She runs her own business selling groceries from a small food store in the town of Kavskye in the Stryi region of western Ukraine. Her little store is well known in their town for friendly customer service and reasonable prices. Ulyana started her venture with the help of her parents and has been in this business for 1 year. Despite her relatively recent start, she already has about $6000 in inventory. Her monthly net profit is about $400.
Ulyana is requesting a loan of $800 to remodel her store. She is hoping to continue growing her business and open a second store in the near future. Ulyana has a kind heart. She supports the local church financially and serves the needy in her community. She has a very good reputation in the town. We believe her focused work, enthusiasm and spirit of initiative will help her succeed and repay her loan on time.
