Lesya is married and has two children. She sells clothing at the market and also sells seeds during the planting season. Previously she worked at a factory. Five years ago the factory closed and Lesya was laid off. Since then she has been her own boss, providing her family with their basic needs - food and clothing.

Lesya's shop is located at a food market where there are always a lot of people. She also puts a small markup on the goods she sells and makes money due to her high sales volume. For this reason, her business is successful and she has a lot of clients.

Lesya requests a loan of 10,000 Ukrainian hryvnias (UAH) to purchase seeds for resale. Late winter and spring is an excellent time for this type of business. Lesya hopes to make an additional profit and improve her family's well-being.
