Natalya owns a small business selling beautiful pictures and artwork at a little kiosk near one of the busy markets in Stryi, Ukraine. She works with artists from a nearby city, Lviv, and has developed a successful business selling quality artwork. Married with three children ages seven to twenty-five, she is an entrepreneurial-minded business owner with definite goals for the future.

In the spring, she would like to move her business to a new location. She plans to use part of her business income to complete some remodeling of the store before she moves. Natalya is also thinking of starting a new business in a different line of work - hair care - with a store called “Mobile Salon”.

Natalya has requested a loan of $800 to purchase new pictures to sell in her kiosk. She will be able to buy around 30 pictures to re-sell. We are excited for the opportunity to assist Natalya with her business and look forward to seeing where her endeavors will take her in the future.
