Irina is an experienced market vendor from the Kherson region. She started her small venture selling men’s and women’s footwear 15 years ago. Irina was struggling to survive and make both ends meet as most Ukrainians did in early post-soviet times. She tried her luck with a shoe sales business and it became quite a success. Presently, Irina has invested about 100,000 Grivnyas in inventory. Her turnover capital amounts to 60,000 Grivnyas.

Irina is divorced. She has a teenage son, Vladislav. She is the only breadwinner in the family at this point. Irina works hard to provide for her family’s needs and keep her business afloat in these difficult economic times. She is seeking a loan of 15,000 Grivnyas to purchase seasonal merchandise and re-stock it for summer.
