Valentina is a skilled seamstress. She lives and works in Nikopol manufacturing clothing and offering repair and tailoring services. She is married and her husband is very supportive of Valentina's business endeavors which are her greatest hobby as well. All her products are very well sewn and cost relatively affordable which is why Valentina always has good demand.

Currently, Valentina has about $1500 in inventory. Her monthly profit amounts to $200. She has been in this business for two years and learned some valuable lessons overcoming challenges and hard times. Valentina's business has another big advantage as it provides jobs to other people, helping fight unemployment rates which have always been a problem in Ukraine. This time Valentina is seeking a 5000 Grivna ($US1,050) loan to purchase sewing machines and accessories to improve the quality of items she offers for sale and to facilitate some working procedures for her employees.
