Anna is married with a 7-year-old daughter. She is an entrepreneur from Energodar, which is a predominantly agricultural region of eastern Ukraine. Anna sells seeds, farming chemicals and pesticides in a little farming store and has another vending location at a market. She started this venture 10 years ago. Currently, she has about 180,000 Grivnyas invested in inventory. Her working capital amounts to 50,000 Grivnyas.
Anna is seeking a 20,000 Grivnya loan to purchase seeds for the second planting season. She always tries to re-stock her inventory, keeping up with the demand and varied market. Anna’s long-term business goal is to remodel her little store to attract more customers.
