A loan of $2,600 helped to purchase tea, coffee, food products and sausage for a subsequent retail sale.


Svetlana's story

Every time Svetlana uses a loan from Kiva, she is satisfied with the timely financial help, which is always necessary for her business. This is not the first loan that she is obtaining from Kiva. She invested her previous loan into a purchase of an additional inventory of merchandise, which resulted in an increase in merchandise quantity and profit. This time, Svetlana wants to use a loan in the amount of 21,000 hryvnia to purchase tea, coffee, food products and sausage for a subsequent retail sale. At the present time, all three of Svetlana's daughters attend different education facilities, and she tries to help them financially as she can. This is why she tries to invest in her business in order to support her family. Also to support the family, Svetlana's husband decided to get involved in an agricultural business and installed a large greenhouse and plans to install another one in the near future.
