A loan of $1,000 helped to buy seeds for planting and soil for flowers.


Nataliya's story

Nataliya, her husband and two small children live in the town of Belaya Tserkov, not far from Kiev. She sells vegetables, fruits, seeds for planting and also tools for gardening and farming. Nataliya wisely included a small add-on cost to the products she sells. A combination of factors, such as a good, well-traveled place of business, heating in the kiosk, where vegetables and fruits for sale are stored, working directly with product suppliers, give Nataliya certain advantages in running the business as compared to her competitors. Nataliya has been involved in this business for three years. Having started her own business due to the absence of regular work with a decent salary, she is only glad now that she once decided to open her own business. Nataliya plans to invest the loan in the amount of 8 000 hryvnia, received from Kiva, into a purchase of seeds for planting and soil for flowers.
