A loan of $1,525 helped to increase her inventory.


Silviya's story

Silviya is a single mother with six children. She lives in Vinogradovo, Western Ukraine where she sells vegetables and fruit in the central marketplace. She was forced to launch this venture four years ago when she was faced with the tough reality of poverty and a need to provide for her kids’ needs. She started very simply with a small vending stall in the market. Her children have been helping her with this venture as much as they could. Presently, Silviya has about 20,000 Grivnyas in inventory. Her profit amounts to 3,000 Grivnyas a month.

Silviya is requesting a loan of 12,000 Grivnyas to increase her capital and purchase additional fruit and vegetables for sale. One of Silviya’s long-term plans is to open a second vending location and expand her trade. She says she is ready to work even harder, make sacrifices. and push to achieve her goals of being a successful entrepreneur. We believe her perseverance and clear vision will be key factors in her small business success. Note: In the photo Silviya is pictured with her son helping her with sales.
