Irina's story

Irina is from the town of Khoost in the western Ukraine. She sells fabrics and furniture at the local department store and has no significant competition. Her merchandise is in demand, and she has her own client base. Irina has been in this business for 10 years. Her current net profit amounts to 7,000 hryvnia. Irina needs additional funds in the sum of 5,000 hryvnia in order to travel and buy merchandise and refill her revolving capital. She is well known among customers because she always brings in quality merchandise and would never offer a second-rate fabric. She values her reputation as an honest entrepreneur. After obtaining the additional profit, Irina hopes to develop her business further, improve living conditions and actively expand merchandise selection.
