Yevgeniya is married and has two teenage sons. She runs a small vending business selling household items, books, office supplies, souvenirs and gift sets in a local marketplace of Kamenka. Yevgeniya has been in this business for 11 years. Her family has been actively helping her run the venture. Presently, Yevgeniya has already about 80,000 Grivnyas invested in merchandise. Her income amounts to 10,000 Grivnyas.
Yevgeniya is seeking a loan of 10,000 Grivnyas to purchase additional supplies for seasonal trade. She is hoping to stock her merchandise on inflatable toys, air mattresses, balls, rubber rings, as well as a variety of greeting cards and puzzles. One of her main goals is to continue investing in her enterprise, seeing it grow and develop even more.
