Мария работает в центральном магазине в своем родном селе Нанково. Там она арендует точку, где торгует детскими товарами и питанием (смесями). Мария работает в этой сфере уже 2 года. Главное преимущество ее бизнеса – это отсутствие конкуренции в селе. Мария очень трудолюбивая и жизнерадостная.
Мария обратилась к КИВА за дополнительной финансовой помощью в размере 10 000 гривен, чтобы пополнить товар на точке, а именно закупить памперсы, влажные салфетки, разные средства гигиены для малышей. Мария хочет постепенно расширять бизнес, чтобы обеспечивать себя и детей, так как с мужем у нее отношения напряженные и часто на данном этапе финансово помогает мама.
