A loan of $1,850 helped to buy seasonal women's shoes.

Svetlana's story

Svetlana lives and works in Melitopol. She earns a living by selling seasonal women's shoes, as well as bags and hats in the local market. She rents her retail space and has been working in this sphere for six years.

An amount of 15,000 hryvnia is needed by Svetlana to buy seasonal women's shoes. Having great experience in this sphere of trade, Svetlana confronted the recession in purchasing power, a crisis, and currency fluctuations, but she coped and was able to keep the business, while continuing to develop it gradually.
