A loan of $625 helped to replenish goods at her store and buy a batch of children's socks, pants and shirts.

Olga's story

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.
