A loan of $1,875 helped to remodel her home, where her son and his bride will live after their wedding.

Mariya's story

Mariya is married and has two children. Her family lives in the city of Khoost. Mariya is retired, but she is very active and can't just sit around the house doing nothing. Because of this, Mariya decided to earn extra money at home by making duvets to order. Using material brought by her clients, Mariya provides them with high quality, well made duvets. This isn't the first year Mariya has been doing this and with this side work, she earns 1,500 hryven (UAH) in supplement to her pension of 843 hryvni.

Mariya's son is getting ready to be married. Mariya is a very caring mother and she started to think ahead about where the young couple will live. For this reason, Mariya applied for a loan through Kiva to remodel her home, where the newlyweds will live, and to get everything ready for their new life together.
