Katerina Bachinskaya is a widow who lives in Belaya Tserkov. She owns a small vending container-store in the central market of Fastov, a neighboring town about 30 kilometers away from Belaya Tserkov. Katerina has been in the clothing sales business for 10 years. Experience, personal characteristics, and financial assistance have promoted stable expansion of Katerina’s venture. Presently, she has about 60,000 Grivnas invested in turnover capital. Her minimum income is about 5,000 Grivnas a month.
Katerina is seeking to have a business that would provide her with a stable income. She knows she doesn’t have another source of income as her husband passed away and she earns her own living. Katerina is responsible and hard working. She never sits idle and loves busy days. Today she is requesting a loan of 15,000 Grivnas to purchase additional clothing for her inventory.
