Ludmila's story

Ludmila is married and has two adult children. She also has her own retail business.

During the 2008 financial crisis Ludmila opened another retail spot which sells office supplies. Her combined experience in retail is about 16 years. However, Ludmila does not want to stop expanding her business. She feels strong and wants to continue to work hard. She also wants to be able to take care of her family. Ludmila is requesting a loan of 10,000 griven to purchase women's fall clothing for the upcoming season.
