Irina lives in the city of Zaporozhye. This is not her first year working in the sales field and selling women's shoes, slippers, shoe laces and shoe accessories at one of the largest city markets. Irina owns two retail outlets. She plans to invest the loan in the amount of 21 000 hryvnia into repairing and remodeling her new retail counter and purchasing winter merchandise at a low purchase price. Wholesale markets often have more affordable prices for next season shoes for sellers-entrepreneurs, if the merchandise is ordered in advance. Irina has always been pragmatic and able to balance her finances well. She hopes that to invest the money received from Kiva wisely once again and with time even expand her new retail outlet by expanding the counter and installing blinds there.

Ирина живет в городе Запорожье. Она уже не первый год работает в сфере торговли на одном из самых крупных рынков города, реализуя женскую обувь, тапочки, шнурки и аксессуары для обуви. У Ирины есть два своих торговых места.

Ирина планирует вложить кредит в 21 000 гривен в ремонт и переоборудование недавно приобретенного нового прилавка и закупку зимнего товара по низкой закупочной цене. На оптовых базах часто цены на обувь следующего сезона бывают доступнее для торговцев-предпринимателей, если заказывать товар заранее. Ирина всегда была прагматичной, и умело рассчитывала свои средства. Она надеется и в этот раз мудро вложить полученные от КИВА средства, а со временем даже расширить новое место, зашить прилавок и поставить там ролеты.
