Вера – вдова. У нее есть дочь-подросток, которую она воспитывала сама. Вера живет в Ивано-Франковске и занимается розничной торговлей парфюмерно-косметическими средствами и средствами гигиены. Она держит целых 3 торговых точки по городу, у нее 6 наемных работников и отдельный склад для товара. Вера раньше работала учителем английского языка, а ее супруг вел этот бизнес. После смерти мужа Вера была вынуждена взять управление бизнеса на себя. Вера установила сравнительно низкие цены на весь широкий ассортимент товарного ряда, ее точки очень выгодно расположены по всему городу. В бизнесе Вера уже занята 20 лет.

Вера планирует вложить кредит КИВА в 20 000 гривен в закупку парфюмерной продукции с целью расширения ассортимента перед праздниками. Закупив духи, одеколоны, туалетную воду, а также краски для волос, Вера надеется удовлетворить возрастающий спрос перед новогодними и рождественскими праздниками. Главная личная цель, которую ставит для себя Вера – оплатить образование дочери в ВУЗе.
