Svetlana's story

Svetlana lives with her family in the resort town of Berdyansk. She's sold affordable children's shoes and clothes on one of the local markets for the last ten years, extensive experience helps her navigate through assortment, prices and demand for clothes inventory. Currently, Svetlana doesn't own her sales point and is forced to rent one, on which she has to spend most of her income.

Svetlana is asking for a loan of 10,000 grivnas in order to to purchase a variety of children's goods, such as shoes and clothes for the fall/winter season. With time and investments, Svetlana hopes to purchase her own sales point and buy a refrigerator for her family. NOTE: Svetlana is photographed at the local branch office.
