Olga's story

Olga is married and has two grown children. She lives and works in the city of Melitopol. Olga sells women's apparel and footwear in the central town market. She has been engaged in this business for nearly 17 years and believes that she has found an acceptable direction. At this point, she has 60,000 hryvnia worth of goods and her net income was 7,000 hryvnia.

Olga needs a loan of 20,000 hryvnia to buy seasonal women's clothing, to increase the range of products and to raise additional income to improve her household. In the future, Olga hopes to gradually expand her business and possibly open another outlet.
