Elvira is married and has three grown children. Nearly 3 years ago she decided to open a little children’s clothing kiosk, a business she says was her calling. She was able to purchase a kiosk in the very center of the market that is easily accessible to many shoppers. Today, Elvira’s business yields $1000 a month in income with an investment of $2,000 in inventory.
Elvira sees a great opportunity for business growth this summer season. Her expertise in quality clothing merchandise is greatly appreciated by her customers, and her desire to assist clients and her entrepreneurial spirit are part of what makes her business successful. On a personal level, Elvira desires to invest her earned profits into repair work in her house. She is requesting a loan for 5,000 Grivnas to broaden the assortment of clothing items she offers at her kiosk so she will be ready for the busy season. She has proven to be a strong and reliable client with “Nadiya Ukraine”. We believe that this loan will be a big help to Elvira as she looks for ways to increase her business activity.
