A loan of $1,500 helped to buy cabbage, cucumbers and tomatoes in bulk.


Olga's story

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.
