Svetlana's story

Svetlana continues to be involved in selling merchandise for agriculture, such as seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. Her kiosk is small, but has a lot of merchandise. The merchandise in her store remains in demand in the region, and this is why Svetlana retains her regular customers. She has been working in this business for 15 years. Svetlana plans to invest the new Kiva loan in the amount of 15,000 hryvnia into a purchase of merchandise for her new retail outlet. She needs to buy seeds and pesticides. Now that she has sufficiently developed her business, her income is stable. Svetlana currently has two retail outlets, and her income will increase.
