Irina is married with two children. She sells small home products such as tea pots, table lights, batteries for clocks, etc. Her business has three locations in a small open market near a factory. The factory workers can buy what they need after work. Since Irina sells inexpensive items, she has clients nearly all the time. Irina has many repeat clients, and a wise discount policy.
Irina would like to borrow 15,000 Ukrainian hryvnia (UAH) to purchase new inventory for her business. Irina has used micro loans in the past and considers them very helpful for her business development.
