Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Oksana's story

Oksana is single. She lives and works in the small town of Korolyovo, Western Ukraine. Oksana sells toys in the central market of her home town. Her vending kiosk is located right in the center of the marketplace. There are no other vendors with similar inventory at the market which helps Oksana’s business develop without having to face fierce competition. She has been in the trade for five years. Currently, Oksana has about 30,000 hryven' in inventory. Her monthly income is about 4,000 hryven'.

Oksana is seeking a loan of 10,000 hryven' to restock her merchandise. She is hoping to generate additional income to be reinvested in her business. One of Oksana’s plans for the future is to open a new vending location and expand her trade as a result.
