A loan of $2,625 helped to make repairs and remodel her recently purchased new counter and to purchase winter merchandise at a low purchase price.

Irina's story

Irina lives in the city of Zaporozhye. This is not her first year working in the sales field and selling women's shoes, slippers, shoe laces and shoe accessories at one of the largest city markets. Irina owns two retail outlets. She plans to invest the loan in the amount of 21 000 hryvnia into repairing and remodeling her new retail counter and purchasing winter merchandise at a low purchase price. Wholesale markets often have more affordable prices for next season shoes for sellers-entrepreneurs, if the merchandise is ordered in advance. Irina has always been pragmatic and able to balance her finances well. She hopes that to invest the money received from Kiva wisely once again and with time even expand her new retail outlet by expanding the counter and installing blinds there.
