Stefaniya is a small entrepreneur from Ivano-Frankivsk. She is involved in selling various types of household goods at one of the large local markets. She has been in this business for 20 years. She does not yet have her own retail outlet, so she has to lease one. She works there herself and does not have any hired workers. Stefaniya currently needs a loan in the amount of 20,000 hryvnia to purchase seamer tools, lids and other goods for canning. August and September in the Ukraine are the hot seasons for canning, and this is why this merchandise group is highly demanded by customers. Stefaniya hopes that during the canning season her income would increase by about 40%. She then hopes to use the resulting profit to make a small repair in her apartment bathroom. With time, Stefaniya wants to have more free time to write books because her main hobby is literature and writing prose.

Стефания – мелкий предприниматель из Ивано-Франковска. Она занимается реализацией разного рода хозяйственных товаров на одном из крупных местных рынков. В этом бизнесе она уже 20 лет. Собственной торговой точки пока нет, приходится арендовать. Работает на точке сама, наемных рабочих нет.

Стефании на данный момент необходим кредит в размере 20 000 гривен для того, чтобы приобрести закаточные ключи, крышки и другие товары для консервации. В Украине август и сентябрь – самые горячие сезоны консервирования, поэтому данная группа товаров пользуется у покупателей большой популярностью. Стефания надеется, что на время сезона закруток ее доход увеличится примерно на 40%. За счет полученной прибыли Стефания затем надеется сделать небольшой ремонт в туалете своей квартиры. Со временем она хотела бы иметь больше свободного времени, чтобы писать книги, так как ее главное хобби – литература и сочинение прозы.
