Yelena is married with two children. She runs a small business in the Central market of Melitopol. She sells yarn and knitting supplies which is a unique type of merchandise. There are few other persons working in this sphere of trade. Yelena has been in this business for over eleven years and she has a great deal of experience. Her enterprise has benefited from lending assistance. Currently, she has about 30,000 Grivnyas in stock. Her net profit amounts to 5,000 Grivnyas a month.

Yelena is requesting a loan of 10,000 Grivnyas in order to increase her working capital. She is a true entrepreneur – enterprising, decisive and determined. She is striving to make a better life for her family. We believe Yelena’s natural talent to adequately assess the current environment and take advantage of it will stimulate her business to grow and keep it sustainable and profitable helping Yelena achieve independence and security in life.
