Irina is married, has one child and makes a living selling women's clothing from a kiosk in a local market. Her location is a good one, because it allows her to reach out to people who come to the market for necessities such as food. She started her business six years ago and tapped into expertise acquired by her mother, who had a lot of sales experience.

Irina would like to borrow 17,500 Ukrainian Grivnas to increase the range of items she has for sale. She would also like to open a second store where she could sell seeds and fertilizers, which will be in high demand during the upcoming spring planting season.
