A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase seasonal women's clothing for sale in the summer.


Antonina's story

This is not the first time Antonina uses Kiva's services. She took her last loan in November of 2011, and used it to expand her business. The winter season was difficult, with adverse weather making work hard, and business was slow. Nevertheless, Antonina was able to make profits and even bought some household appliances.

This time, Antonina is taking a loan of 12 000 hryvnia in order to purchase seasonal women's clothing for sale during summer. Every Ukrainian family tries to find a way to rest and revitalize in the summer, and Antonina's family is no exception. She hopes to use her profits from sales of additional merchandise to pay for her family's vacation at a resort in Kirillovka on the sea of Azov.
