A loan of $1,250 helped to purchase additional clothing merchandise.

Olga's story

Olga is a divorced mother with one daughter. She sells clothing from her home in the town of Kherson and in one of the local marketplaces. Olga launched this business ten years ago when she faced some personal and financial struggles. She managed to grow and develop her venture and presently, she has 25,000 Grivnyas worth of merchandise. Her monthly income amounts to 10,000 Grivnyas.

Olga believes a loan of 9,800 Grivnyas will help her diversify assorted merchandise and attract new potential customers as a result. She is very organized and responsible. She can always give a sober evaluation of a situation and make a wise decision having calculated costs and profit. We believe Olga will efficiently use the current loan, using it to benefit further expansion of her successful trade.
