Veseloye, Ukraine / Clothing Sales

A loan of $1,250 helped to purchase seasonal women's clothing for fall and winter.


Olga's story

Olga is a 50-year-old entrepreneur who has worked for 14 years selling women's clothing at a market. After years of work in this sector, she was able to buy a market stall, which significantly helps her save money on rent at the moment. Her best selling items are blouses, jackets, and sweaters.

Olga needs an additional 10,000 griven in order to purchase women's fall and winter clothing. She cannot always count on getting a loan from local loan institutions because they are reluctant to give loans to people approaching retirement age. Therefore, a Kiva loan is a real solution for Olga's problem and naturally, a godsend for the development of her business.
