A loan helped to buy materials for handmade articles.


Daniela's story

Daniela is a 26-year-old artisan from Ungheni, Moldova. She is a young mother of a baby boy. Her husband Oleg is working. Since the appearance of a new member in the family, the monthly expenses grew significantly. Daniela thought that she also could contribute to the family budget. In this way she started to deal with making handmade accessories. From childhood she loved to make something special and was different from the other children with a great imagination.

Now she makes a large variety of brooches, headbands, different articles of beads and others. She sells her products at the open-air market in Ungheni and also uses social networks. Daniela has already success in her business and is happy that she managed to transform a hobby to a source of income.

Daniela is asking for a loan from Kiva to buy materials for her products, which she orders abroad. As a result she will be able to continue to develop her beautiful occupation and will have more inspiration to make new beautiful articles.
