Zhanna is a private entrepreneur from Zaporozhye. She owns a women’s footwear sales business in one of the local marketplaces called “Yubileinyi.” Zhanna has her own loyal clientele and has been in this trade for seven years. Presently, she has about 30,000 UAH in inventory. This past summer, Zhanna was able to take a month off and go to the sea on vacation. The most difficult part was finding a trustworthy salesperson to fill in for her for one month but Zhanna accomplished this. Now she has more strength and is ready to continue her business further.
Zhanna is requesting a 10,200 UAH loan to increase her assortment of seasonal footwear. Merchandise is getting more expensive and Zhanna needs additional money for her business.
