Alexandra continues to sell women's shoes: in the winter time she sells loafers, boots and other winter shoes and in the summer changes to sandals and flats. The previous Kiva loan helped Alexandra increase her sales circulation. This time she plans to invest the loan in the amount of 10,000 hryvnia to buy summer sandals and ballet flats which are always in high demand during the vacation season in Ukraine. Alexandra's prices are always moderate and affordable for the middle class. This type of merchandise will definitely sell well and the ballet flats will also sell well before the school season which starts on September 1st in the Ukraine.

Александра продолжает заниматься реализацией женской обуви: зимой торгует туфлями, сапогами и ботинками, летом переходит на шлепки и сланцы. Последний КИВА кредит помог Александре увеличить товарооборот.
В этот раз Александра планирует вложить кредит КИВА в размере 10 000 гривен в закупку летних сланцев и балеток, которые всегда хорошо расходятся в сезон отпусков и жары в Украине. Цены у Александры всегда умеренные, доступные для среднего класса. Этот товар точно будет ходовым, а балетки также подойдут и для реализации перед школьным сезоном (школа у детей в Украине начинается с 1 сентября).
