Stepanida's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy seeds of tulips for planting to develop the business.

Stepanida's story

Stepanida thanks Kiva lenders for the previous loan that helped her to purchase flower seeds of Eustoma for planting. Due to this she was able to diversify the assortment of selling flowers and to meet buyers' demand for these beautiful flowers.

Stepanida continues to grows flowers and to sell them. She is helped by her husband and one more worker to grow flowers. It is the main source of income for Stepanida and her husband, who are both retired. For her it is very important to develop her business and make people happier with flowers.

Now Stepanida is requesting a new loan from Kiva to buy seeds of tulips for planting. As a result she will be able to offer these flowers in spring holidays and will develop her business.
