A loan helped to buy an assortment of decorative goods such as flowers, wreaths, and baskets.


Svetlana's story

Svetlana has been selling household goods for more than 11 years in her native city of Pavlograd. Before she started her own business, she used to work in a bank, but she then decided to work for herself. Svetlana is very hardworking; she works six days a week for 7-8 hours. She has invested her earnings in the growth of her business and has also helped her family.

This year, Easter will be celebrated in Ukraine quite early. After Easter, there are always commemoration days, when people bring wreaths and artificial flowers to the tombs of their dead loved ones. Because of this, Svetlana wants to purchase some Easter products as well as an assortment of artificial flowers, baskets, and artificial spruce foliage to make flowery baskets. She needs 70,000 hryvnia for this purchase.
