Galina is married and has two adult children. She sells women's and men's shoes at Ulana Market in Pavlograd. She has been in this business for 13 years.

Galina has applied for a loan of 15,000 UAH to buy new inventory for the fall season. Galina hopes to earn additional income that she can spend meeting her family's needs.
