Olga is divorced. She has two daughters and lives in Ivano-Frankivsk. For the past seven years, she has been involved in wholesale and retail business and sells fruits and vegetables at the central food market. Since she has no permanent place to conduct her business, she sells her goods from her own booth. She sells produce at prices that are attractive to both wholesale buyers and the average consumer. Her net income is about 3,000 hryvnia.

Olga plans to invest an amount of 12,000 hryvnia into the purchase of a wide range of agricultural products such as cabbage, cucumbers and tomatoes. She hopes to increase her working capital and take advantage of lower purchase prices.

She has recently bought a minivan for 14,000 dollars, which has significantly eased her work and helped her to become more mobile. Over time, she would like to complete some repairs in the apartment where she lives with her parents and her children.

Ольга – разведена. У нее двое дочерей. Она живет в Ивано-Франковске. Уже 7 лет она занимается мелкооптовой и розничной торговлей овощами и фруктами на центральном продуктовом рынке. Так как постоянного места для торговли у нее нет, она продает продукты с собственного буса. Цены на овощи и фрукты у Ольги привлекательны как для мелкооптовых покупателей, так и для среднестатистического потребителя. Чистая прибыль составляет около 3 000 гривен.

Ольга планирует вложить сумму в 12 000 гривен в закупку ассортимента сельхозпродукции, а именно капусты, огурцов и помидоров. Она надеется увеличить оборотные средства и заработать на снижении закупочных цен. Недавно Ольга приобрела минивэн за 14 000 долларов, что помогло ей существенно облегчить работу и сделать бизнес мобильным. Со временем Ольга хотела бы доделать ремонт в квартире, в которой живет вместе с родителями и детьми.
