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).

A loan of $600 helped to purchase fall/winter inventory.

Elena's story

Elena is a sharp, young entrepreneur from Melitopol, Ukraine. She started her own clothing business five years ago and has been building a successful enterprise. Her business is located at the busy central market in Melitopol. She has a good location in the market for her sales kiosk and creates an attractive display of clothing for passing customers. Elena is single and lives with her parents. The income she is able to make is a help to her entire family.

Elena has requested a loan of $600 from Nadiya Ukraine so that she can purchase new fall and winter clothing inventory. This loan will allow her to increase her income by having the right clothing available to meet seasonal demand. Over the last five years, Elena has proven to be a great loan client with Nadiya Ukraine. We are glad to have this new opportunity to continue assisting her with her business.
