A loan of $625 helped to buy women's sweaters and children's jackets.

Katerina's story

Katerina has been using Kiva's loans twice now. She invested the previous loans into selling of sweets. Even though she put a lot of effort to make her business grow and bring in regular profit the sweets frequently went bad because all of the goods were not sold in time. Because of that Katerina sustained some losses. This is why she decided to entirely change her business model and started to sell women's and children's clothing and by that has increased her income.

This time Katerina has come for a loan in the amount of 5,000 hryvnia to buy women's sweaters and children's jackets to sell during the winter season. Right now Katerina is not afraid of losses as before and hopes that she can invest more money into the continuous growth of her own business.
