A loan of $1,375 helped to buy children's shirts, skirts, dresses, light spring jackets, sweaters and blouses.


Lydiya's story

Lydiya has used financial assistance from Kiva before. She took a previous loan to buy an assortment of clothes for resale. The money she received from Kiva helped her to display enough merchandise for the spring. She did not experience any particular difficulties during her previous loan, although her purchasing capacity decreased a little. In general, she did not see an increase in her business, but she was able to buy an apartment as well as household appliances for her son.

This time, she has requested a loan of 11,000 hryvnia in order to purchase children's shirts, skirts, dresses, light spring jackets, sweaters and blouses. The spring promises to bring profits, as people intensify their shopping. And in order not to let them slip by, one needs to offer a good, decent market supply.
