A loan of $1,250 helped to purchase autumn and winter clothing for re-sale at her market stall.


Raisa's story

Raisa works in retail at a market. For the past 17 years, Raisa has been selling men's footwear and clothing at one of the local markets in Melitopol. Thanks to being well experienced and having her own market stall, Raisa has been able to establish a regular clientele and has become successful. Raisa now needs a loan of 10,000 Ukrainian Hryvnia (UAH) to purchase autumn and winter goods to sell at her outlet. Raisa hopes to use the money from Kiva to further develop her business and improve her family's living standard.
