A loan of $2,725 helped to open a new market stall.


Svetlana's story

Svetlana is taking out another loan so that she can finance the opening of a second market stall at the central market. She is hoping to get substantial profits from the increased goods turn-over. Last winter Svetlana had difficulties as the bad weather resulted in diminished purchasing. Despite this set back Svetlana has been able to return to high profit levels come spring. She is very serious about expanding her business as it is the sole source of income for her.
