Nataliya sells second-hand clothing imported from Europe. This kind of merchandise is in high demand because of the difficult financial situation of many Ukrainians and because new clothing is often of low quality and overpriced. Secondhand clothing is generally of decent quality and affordably priced. Nataliya rents space at the local market and also travels to surrounding towns. She has been in this business for 2 years.

Nataliya hopes to purchase seasonal clothing items, as well as jackets, overalls and bed linens, for 10,000 hryvnia. She plans to save some of the profits to pay for her daughter's tuition to the medical college, which is not cheap.

Наталия торгует одеждой секонд-хэнд, привезенной из Европы. Такой вид товара пользуется широким спросом среди населения в связи с трудной финансовой ситуацией многих граждан Украины. Более того, новая одежда часто оказывается неважного качества и по завышенным ценам. А в секонд-хэнде и качество неплохое и цены доступные. Наталия арендует точку на базаре, а также занимается выездной торговлей по областям. В этом бизнесе уже 2 года.
Наталия надеется закупить товар по сезону, а также кофты, комбинезоны и постельное белье на сумму в 10 000 гривен. Из полученной прибыли планирует отложить часть средств, чтобы оплатить потом обучение дочери в медицинском колледже, что стоит недешево.
