Svitlana is married. She lives in Belaya Tserkov and sells groceries and pastry in the city market called “Bilotserkivets”. Her merchandise always sells well because of the lower price policy Svitlana has set in her kiosk. She is a hard worker and usually works late hours after all other market vendors are done with their sales for the day. Svitlana has been in the trade for five years. Currently, her turnover capital is about $2000. Gross income is about $1450 a month, while monthly net profit is usually about $750.

Svitlana would like to get a loan to buy assorted inventory for her vending location. She is hoping to generate additional profit to provide for the needs of her family and to help her younger daughter (pictured) through college.
