Natalya is married with a grown son. She sells women’s clothing and footwear in her home town of Novaya Kahovka. Natalya launched her trade due to financial struggles many years ago. She managed to survive all the challenges of perestroika and the unfavorable economic climate back in the '90s in Ukraine. Natalya developed her business well. Currently she has two sales locations with 30,000 Grivnyas in monthly sales.
Natalya is planning to invest the loan of 15,000 Grivnyas in additional merchandise. She is hoping to improve the selection of inventory she offers for sale in her kiosks, thus attracting even more customers to her business. The profits generated will be used to meet her family’s daily needs.
