Yelena's story

Yelena is an entrepreneur from Melitopol. For 12 years, she has sold women's clothing at a local market from a space that she owns. Yelena plans to use the funds received from Kiva (5,000 grivens) to purchase an inventory of seasonal women's clothing to sell at her market. She wants to buy t-shirts, sweaters, skirts, pants and dresses with her Kiva loan and sell them profitably this spring.
