Irina sells clothing at the central market in Kherson. She has been in this business for 12 years. She is married and has one child.

When she started this business, she really wanted to be economically independent. She has reached that goal now. Today, she has many repeat clients and a stable business. Irina is a very friendly person and has good relationships with her neighbors at the market.

Irina would like to borrow 15,000 hryvnas to increase her inventory. Irina hopes to receive additional income and invest it back into her business.
