Irina is single. She offers retail items such as groceries, jewelry and fancy goods in a local grocery market in Stryi, Western Ukraine. Irina owns a kiosk and a vending stall. Irina launched her business on the advice of her mother who supported her from the very beginning. Irina has set a reasonable pricing policy and that became one of the reasons why many clients come to her for groceries and other inventory. Irina has been in this business only for 3 years. She already has about 25,000 Grivnas in inventory.

Irina has employed three vendors who work for her. This time she is hoping to get a loan for 9,000 Grivnas to further develop her business. Irina is very sharp and learns fast. She always listens to the advice of other entrepreneurs who are more experienced and have been in business longer. We believe her managerial abilities and focused attitude will secure prompt loan repayment and further success of her trade.
