Natalya is a widow and has a 19-year-old daughter. She is a small entrepreneur from Berdyansk, where she runs a water filter sales business in one of the local malls. She started this business one year ago. Her current working capital is 20,000 Grivnyas and her profit is 5,500 Grivnyas.
Natalya is a competent businesswoman, which has helped her gain the trust of her customers. Water filters sell well in Berdyansk as running water is polluted and needs additional purification. Natalya enjoys working with this type of merchandise and is hoping to continue expanding her business in the future.
Natalya is requesting a loan for 20,000 Grivnyas to purchase assorted merchandise for further retail sale. She is hoping to generate additional profit and invest it in the reconstruction of her small selling facility.
