Olga recently opened her own business. About a year ago, she began renting a small stall at a local market where she sells her goods such as socks, children's clothing. In the beginning, Olga was afraid of starting her own business since everyone was talking about the financial crisis. Now, she doesn't doesn't regret it and is glad she took that step. She requires a loan of 5,000 hryvnia in order to replenish her inventory at her stall and to buy a new batch of children's socks, pants and shirts. She plans to improve her business. Not long ago, she found a better space at the market and hopes, with time, to move and begin selling there once she saves up the money.

Ольга совсем недавно открыла свой торговый бизнес. Около года назад она стала арендовать небольшой прилавок на местном рынке, где раскладывает свои товары и продает носки и детскую одежду. Сначала Ольга боялась начинать свое дело, так как все говорили о кризисе. Но сейчас совсем не жалеет, что отважилась на этот шаг.
Ольге потребовался кредит в размере 5 000 гривен для того, чтобы пополнить товар на точке и закупить новую партию детских носков и трусиков, а также маечки. Она планирует расширять бизнес. Недавно нашла более подходящее место на рынке, надеется со временем перейти торговать туда, когда немного подкопит денег.
