Tatyana is widowed. She owns a retail business selling various agricultural products like seeds, fertilizers, bug killers, etc. Tatyana has a large assortment of products, affordable prices and a good reputation at the market. She has many repeat clients who buy items from her to use on their gardens.
Tatyana has been in this business for 17 years. The business is seasonal, with items selling mostly in spring and summer. In this particular area, many people grow a lot of vegetables, so Tatyana's goods are in demand. She hopes to develop her business further and have more clients who would use her services. Tatyana is requesting a loan of 20,000 Grivnas to purchase seasonal inventories - seeds and fertilizers – that her clients will start buying soon. Tatyana hopes to receive additional income and improve her business conditions by fixing the store where she works.
