Olena is married and has a son. She works hard to be able to provide for her family and pay all the bills, especially in this time of financial crisis in Ukraine. Olena runs a small vending business selling clothing items and footwear in the central market in Belaya Tserkov. She has been in the trade for over 2 and half years. Presently, she has about 15,000 Grivnas invested in inventory. Her net profit exceeds 2,200 Grivnas.

Olena is hoping to use the loan of 5000 Grivnas to purchase additional better quality merchandise at wholesale price which would help her increase proceeds from sales. Olena could double her inventory since she had got her first loan. Moreover, profit generated would help her continue saving for her own housing which has been Olena’s dream for many years.
