first things first: I use Linux and am therefore by far no expert in Windows.
But AFAICT, you may give all your subversion users a Windows file share
containing the repository and secure the folder containing the repository
with appropriate file system measures.

Your subversion user have to use the file:// protocol of subversion (so no
subversion server process is needed).

But be aware that the file://-protocol of subversion may not work as reliable
as a client/server approach.
