A loan of $2,525 helped to purchase pasta, sugar, grains and new varieties of tea.


Yelena's story

Yelena decided to obtain a loan in the sum of 20,000 hryvnia to purchase pasta, sugar, grains and new varieties of tea that are in demand during the cold season. She used her previous loan to increase her product assortment because she plans to open another retail outlet at the market. Yelena bought a new refrigerator for her home and uses an old one for her business. Yelena's main business advantage over her competition is the largest selection of tea and coffee of various brands, to satisfy the most demanding customer.
