Yelena's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to restock her merchandise.
Yelena is divorced. She has a grown son, Alexander. Yelena is an entrepreneur from Melitopol, where she sells women’s outer clothing in the central city market. She launched this small business 16 years ago. Presently, Yelena has about 35,000 grivnyas worth of clothes in inventory. Her monthly profit amounts to 6,000 grivnyas a month. Yelena is seeking a 15,000 grivnya loan to restock her merchandise and generate additional income. She believes a good array of clothing items will help her better serve the needs of her clients and increase her sales. Additional income will allow Yelena to invest more in her family’s well-being. She hopes to do some remodeling at home to provide a better living environment for her son and herself.
