A loan of $2,625 helped to remodel his home into a new grocery store.


Yanosh's story

Yanosh, his wife, and two children live in the village of Borzhava. He sells groceries in this, his native village. Currently, Yanosh is forced to rent his store, and it doesn't come cheaply. Yanosh's business has its own advantages: a diverse assortment of goods and affordable prices on various items. At the present time, Yanosh has 20,000 hryven worth of inventory. He has been in this business for 7 years now.

Yanosh is planning to use the loan he receives through Kiva to remodel his house, dividing off one part of it for a store, and to get it equipped in time for opening. Having his own store will give Yanosh the ability to leave the rented store, and thereby end the expenses of rent and public utilities. The store's new location is very advantageous since it is located on the main street that many vacationers use to get to the beach in Summer.
