A loan helped to increase her variety of summer clothes.


Zukhra's story

Zukhra was born in Uzbekistan. She moved to Ukraine with her husband, who was in the military. After some time, she and her husband divorced and she found herself in a foreign country with two children. She started her business from scratch. At first she sewed clothes to sell, then she rented a kiosk and started selling clothes. Then she expanded her business by renting another kiosk to sell food items. Her business went well.

Today Zukhra has a good turnover and wants to further develop her business. Zukhra is requesting a loan of 50,000 UAH in order to buy summer clothes--dresses, sundresses, etc. She has many repeat customers and Zukhra wants to offer them new items. Zukhra invests most of her money in her business. Recently she bought two freezers.
