A loan of $1,000 helped to expand the inventory of spring merchandise.


Nadezhda's story

Nadezhda lives in Drogobych. She sells socks, stockings, gloves, tank tops and slippers at one of the local markets. Her retail outlet is located at the walkway to the market, where all of the potential clients pass through. Nadezhda has been involved in this entrepreneurship for 12 years. She currently has merchandise valued at 10,000 hryvnia. Currently, Nadezhda's business is not very developed, but despite that, it provides a stable income for her and her family. Nadezhda hopes to use the loan to expand the inventory of spring merchandise selection. A more varied choice of merchandise attracts customers, and Nadezhda would be able to earn more due to a quicker goods turnover. Small things and inexpensive goods that Nadezhda sells sell well and are in high demand.
