Oksana is a widow. She raises her teenage son all by herself. Oksana sells women’s clothing in the local markets of three little towns in the Stryi region – Dolina, Bolekhiv and Skolye. Variety of merchandise and reasonable prices are some of the factors which have promoted the success and rapid growth of Oksana’s venture. She got involved in the trade 13 years ago. Currently, she has about 15,000 Grivnas in inventory.

Oksana knows she is the only one who can help her son get settled in life. She is trying to do all she can to set a firm foundation and provide a decent education for him. Moreover, Oksana is hoping to continue helping her mother and mother-in-law. This is why she is working hard to keep her business running and making profit.

This time Oksana is seeking a loan for 11,000 Grivnas to purchase additional merchandise, e.g. skirts, pants and capris for the coming spring season.
