Vera is from Novaya Kahovka, where she sells in one of the local markets. She sells women's clothing from space rented from the market administrators. She has been in this business for 17 years.

Vera has come to KIVA for financial help in the form of a 21,000 hryvnia loan for buying spring clothing, particularly blouses and plants, and also fake flowers to sell alongside the clothing. In Ukraine market sellers often mix different good together for sale to support their business, especially when business at the market is slow. Vera is also taking this approach for her business.

Вера – из Новой Каховки. Она торгует на одном из местных рынков. Вера продает женскую одежду, арендуя землю у администрации рынка, торгует в палатке. В торговле занята уже 17 лет.
Вера обратилась к КИВА за финансовой помощью в 21 000 гривен с целью закупить весеннюю одежду, а именно блузки и брюки, а также приобрести искусственные цветы на продажу параллельно с ассортиментом одежды. Часто в Украине рыночным предпринимателям приходится совмещать разные товары на продажу, чтобы поддерживать свой бизнес, особенно в периоды затишья на рынках. Вера тоже использует этот подход в своем бизнесе.
