Oksana owns a successful clothing sales business at the central market in Kahovka, Ukraine. She has a small booth in a good, visible location at the market where each day she sets up an attractive clothing display for passing customers. Oksana is divorced. Her business provides an important source of income for her. She currently makes around $1,000 in a typical month.
Oksana has requested a 12-month loan of 5,000 Ukrainian Grivnas to add to her working business capital and help purchase new inventory. She hopes to increase her sales and resulting profits. We believe 20 years of experience working in this sphere of trade, perseverance and commitment will guarantee successful growth of this small venture and prompt repayment of the current loan.
