Yelena's story

Yelena is married and has two children. She and her family live in the city of Melitopol. Yelena sells yarn at one of the markets in her home city. She always offers a wide range of products at affordable prices, and has a steady customer base. She has been operating this business since 1998. Currently, she has a working capital of 25,000 hryvnias, and makes 8,000 hryvnias in profits.

Yelena is planning to use her Kiva loan to purchase a new lot of assorted yarn for subsequent resale at the market. She is planning to use her additional profits to carry out repairs in her home, improve her living conditions, and to continue growing her business.
