A loan of $2,625 helped to buy an assortment of denim clothing.

Elena's story

Elena invested her previous loan from Kiva in developing her business and, with her additional profits, bought a car for both work and family needs.

Elena would like to invest 21,000 hryven in increasing her assortment of denim clothing in order to attract customers of various age groups. With the money she saves from her business, she hopes in time to open an additional sales outlet at the same bazaar, but for children's goods and, in doing so, to capture a new segment of the market.
