Nadezhda is single. She is a market entrepreneur from Pavlograd who sells perfumes, cosmetics and personal care products in the town's central marketplace. She has already invested about 30,000 Grivnyas in this business; her profit is 5,500 Grivnyas a month.
Nadezhda came from a small town and started her enterprise three years ago. Today, Nadezhda is an independent young lady. She owns a container-store, as her shop is housed in a large metal shipping container often used for transporting cargo. Containers can also be used for storage, and make an ideal shelter from which market vendors can sell merchandise.
Nadezhda is seeking a loan of 20,000 Grivnyas to purchase additional merchandise and to increase her working capital. She hopes that increased inventory turnover will generate the necessary funds to continue to sustain her business as well as meet her daily needs.
