A loan of $2,475 helped to buy inventory for the winter season.


Vitaliy's story

Vitaliy is from Khoost. He sells women's shoes and clothes locally. Vitaliy used to travel village to village selling, but he bought a stall for 14,000 hryven (UAH) at the local market that is not equipped for travel.

Vitaliy needs 20,000 hryven in order to buy inventory for the winter season. Vitaliy hopes to invest the profit he earns in developing his business and in his eldest daughter's education. Vitaliy loves his family very much and he makes sure that they have all the necessities.
