Ludmila is a hard-working entrepreneur from Ordzhonikidze in the south central part of Ukraine. She started her small business about one year ago and has a little outdoor kiosk at the busy Central market in Ordzhonikidze. Clothing sales has been a good business as there is always a high demand for clothes. Ludmila has built up around $4000 worth of inventory on hand and makes about $400 in profit each month. Ludmila is married and has one child. Her business is a good source of income for her family.
Ludmila has requested an eight month loan to increase her working capital. We are happy for this opportunity to support Ludmila as she works to develop a stable and successful business.
