A loan of $1,875 helped to purchase seasonal merchandise.


Zaira's story

Irina is married and has an adult daughter. Irina works at the Central market and sells women's and children's clothing - dresses, tunics, and blouses. She owns her retail location and has 17 years of experience in this trade.

Last year, Irina encountered some difficulties - a sharp decline in the volume of sales, together with a fluctuating currency exchange rate that increased the cost of her merchandise. Thanks to her persistence and hard work, Irina was able to persevere through the hard time and restore her business' profitability to previous levels.

Despite her age (58), Irina plans to continue developing her business and increasing her sales volume. She is requesting a loan of 15,000 hryvnia to purchase seasonal merchandise. Irina plans to use her additional profits for expansion of her business.
