Larisa is married with two grown children. She lives in Melitopol and owns a flower sales business. So far she has 2 vending locations where she offers a variety of flowers that can please the tastes of the most demanding customers. Larisa has been in the trade for 15 years. She has 30,000 Grivnyas in working capital.
Larisa is requesting a 15,000 Grivnya loan to open a new vending location to add to the existing two that she already has. Larisa is planning to re-invest income that is generated in the further development of her business and construct a greenhouse for flowers that she can grow on her property.
