A loan of $1,250 helped to purchase puffer jackets for sale during the cold autumn-winter period.


Victoria's story

Victoria has used Kiva services several times already. Thanks to the timely obtained financial help, her business not only stayed afloat, but gradually developed and grew. She moved to a new retail location at the same market, where she previously worked. Now, her sales have increased more. This time, Victoria requested a loan in the amount of 10,000 hryvnia to purchase puffer jackets for sale during the cold autumn-winter period. Thanks to the fact that she will increase her goods turnover, she would have to travel less for wholesale merchandise purchases, which would also decrease her expenses and wasted time. Victoria is thinking about developing a website and starting to sell her merchandise also through the Internet, which today is becoming more popular in Ukraine.
