A loan of $1,275 helped to buy more slippers to sell during winter.

Natalya's story

Natalya, her husband, and her daughter live in Zaporozhye, Ukraine. She sells various items at the indoor market in her hometown. Natalya sells slippers, gift sets, and decorative knickknacks. In the market she has very little competition, which helps her to develop her business. Natalya has two shops. Her net income amounts to 8,000 hryvnia.

Natalya plans to invest the money from a 10,000 hryvnia loan in purchasing more slippers for resale. Slippers always sell well in the cold season, so Natalya would not like to miss the opportunity to earn extra money during the season. Next year, Natalya plans on opening another retail space if she can earn enough extra income from sales.
