Not long ago, the neighboring shopkeepers decided to sell their shop. Olga immediately saw this as an opportunity to expand her own business and bought it. In so doing she has increased her inventory and expanded her business. Now, Olga is seeking a loan through Kiva in order to buy up office supplies for the inventory in her new sales outlet. She wants to continue to expand her business in the future by reinvesting her profits and by her own development as a small businessperson.

Ольга – из Павлограда. Она работает на центральном рынке города и торгует там канцтоварами. Торговая точка находится в проходном ряду, что явно способствует высоким уровням продаж. Ольга занимается этим бизнесом уже более 5 лет. Ее ежемесячный доход составляет около 6 500 гривен в месяц.

Недавно соседи-предприниматели решили продать свой торговый павильон. Ольга сразу же увидела в этом возможность расширения для себя и купила у них соседнее место, увеличив свои обороты и расширив свой бизнес. Сейчас Ольга обратилась за кредитом в КИВА для того, чтобы закупить канцтовары для новой точки продаж. Она хочет и в дальнейшем продолжать расширять свой бизнес, вкладывая в него полученные средства и развиваясь в качестве малого предпринимателя.
