Svetlana's story

Svetlana lives in Melitopol. She sells various goods at a local shopping centre where she rents space for her shop. She has been in this line of work for 12 years and has acquired considerable experience in customer relations.

Svetlana has turned to Kiva for a loan of 10,000 hryvnia in order to purchase souvenirs and lamps prior to the Ukraine's holiday season. Using these funds, she hopes to expand the assortment of her merchandise in anticipation of increased holiday sales.
