A loan of $1,875 helped to increase assortment of spring footwear.


Irina's story

Irina sells men's and women's sports shoes on the market. She has been in the business since 2016. Before to that, she helped her husband in a similar business. Then she decided to try to trade shoes herself.
In 2017, Irina bought her boutique on the market. Now she needs additional working capital to buy a batch of spring and summer goods. She asked for a loan of 50,000 hryvnia to purchase men's shoes for spring.
Irina's main competitive advantage is her trading experience, knowledge of buyers' needs, as well as the affordable prices of shoes. Irina lives with her husband in her apartment, raising her son. Most of the profit will go to the maintenance of the family and, of course, to the development of her business.
