Мария – замужем, у нее взрослая дочь. Мария живет и работает в городе Ивано-Франковске. В свое время она работала на радиозаводе. После закрытия завода Мария была вынуждена пойти на базар и начать собственный бизнес. Сейчас она занимается розничной торговлей женской обувью на центральном рынке своего родного города, где всегда много потенциальных покупателей. В этой сфере работает уже 12 лет. Чистая прибыль на данный момент составляет 5 000 гривен.

Мария планирует вложить кредит от КИВА в размере 17 000 гривен в закупку ассортимента зимней обуви, а именно она хотела бы приобрести 65 пар обуви для последующей реализации у себя. Пока еще зимняя обувь пользуется спросом, Мария надеется за счет хорошей выручки увеличить и свой доход. Марии нравится работать с этим видом товара, и, хотя она торговала самыми разными вещами раньше, сейчас она решила заниматься исключительно реализацией женской обуви. В этом ей помогает и дочь, которая работает на том же рынке, реализуя аналогичный товар на своей торговой точке.
