Olena is married with two children. She is an entrepreneur from Uzhgorod. Olena sells children's clothing in one of the local markets. She launched her business five years ago. Currently, she earns 5,000 UAH of net profit each month.
Olena is seeking a loan of 10,000 UAH to purchase additional merchandise for her kiosk. She typically will buy inventory wholesale from her suppliers for retail sale. This allows her to maintain an adequate amount of inventory on hand and to easily update her product selection if an item is selling well or not moving quickly enough. The current loan will continue to benefit Olena's business and provide much needed income for her and her family.
