Tatyana's story

Tatyana is using the Kiva loan program for the third time. Each time, the timely help provided her business an opportunity to grow and evolve, thanks to which Tatyana’s family was able to enjoy dignified living conditions in spite of difficult economic times and ongoing overall price hikes. Since her last loan, Tatyana has been able to complete a full renovation of her apartment, install new windows, and renovate the kitchen, bath and toilet, which is something she had wanted to do for a long time.

Tatyana would like to invest the obtained 15,000 UAH into buying cosmetics and high-end fashion jewelry from Germany, in order to sell these wares in her store and increase her revenues.
