A loan of $2,600 helped to buy artificial flowers.

Oksana's story

Oksana works in retail selling women's clothing. In spring, she also sells artificial flowers and wreaths. Her previous Kiva loan was used for flowers. There have not been any huge changes since then, but thanks to that loan, she was able to buy a new shipment of clothing and to help her daughter, who is a student. Oksana says that last year was a difficult one in retail because the purchasing power of the local citizens was lower than it had been, and as a result, her income decreased. However, she is not discouraged, and has hope for the future. Oksana is seeking a loan of 21,000 Ukrainian Hryvnya to buy artificial flowers and wreaths. She plans to make a good profit from them and to buy clothing for the summer season.
