Larisa's story

Larisa is divorced. She has been raising her two children for a long time. Larisa and her family live in Novaya Kahovka. This is small town, and it has always been hard to find a job there. This is why, in order to provide for her children, Larisa decided to start her own business and work with sweat on her face to have a consistent income. She started selling various types of merchandise fifteen years ago. Today, Larisa sells plastic covers for tables, napkins, tablecloths, mosquito nets, etc. in the "Maydan" store. Today, Larisa's merchandise is valued at 15,000 hryvnia. Larisa plans to use the loan of 12,000 hryvnia to add to the assortment of plastic table covers, tablecloths, napkins and nets for sale in her store. She plans to quickly sells the obtained merchandise because this type of merchandise is characterized by high turnover. She plans to use the resulting profit to continue developing her sales and providing for her family.
