A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase new goods for her second sales outlet.

Nataliya's story

Nataliya has received loans from Kiva a few times in the past in order to develop and expand her business. She is systematically developing two sales outlets, working at one herself and having hired a salesperson for the second one. She earns a steady income from them, and recently has been able to buy exercise equipment so she can take care of her health. Thanks to her previous loan from Kiva, she was able to buy a collection of spring-summer sportswear (tracksuits, shorts, and t-shirts) at a good price, and successfully sold it. This time, Nataliya is seeking a loan of 8,000 Ukrainian Hryvnia to buy new goods for her second outlet to increase sales. She plans to buy warm tracksuits and jackets to sell for the winter when the ski season kicks into high gear. Nataliya is not afraid of difficulties; however, she is somewhat worried about the increase of internet shopping for clothing, as young people are not coming to shop at the market as often, which is leading to a drop-off in business.
