Yelena is married with two children. She and her family live in Pavlograd. Yelena works in the central market selling women’s sweaters, pants and skirts. She owns her own vending facility.

Yelena’s daughter got married and would like to live separately from her parents with her husband. Yelena wants to help her daughter and son-in-law buy their own apartment. She works hard to make her dream come true and have enough savings to make an investment in her daughter’s family life. Yelena is now requesting a loan of $1200 to purchase 30 sweaters and 40 pairs of pants for retail sale. She is hoping to expand her business and start selling men’s outer wear too.
