Alla, who lives with her husband and two children in a small two-bedroom apartment, has owned and operated a small business selling women’s shoes for sevn years. After graduating from a local trade school (having obtained a sewing specialty), Alla could not find a job and so first worked as a salesperson in her mother’s business. After a while she started her own enterprise, and today has three retail outlets. Extensive experience and wise pricing policies help Alla to succeed.

Now requesting a loan of 15,000 UAH to purchase a new spring collection of shoes, Alla hopes to earn additional income and improve her living conditions.
