A loan of $625 helped to buy seasonal clothing such as women's spring blouses, dresses, and skirts.


Silviya's story

Thanks to her previous Kiva loan, Silviya was able to gradually increase her income from sales due to the expansion of the assortment of goods she sells, which has allowed her to gain more regular clients. This time, she has approached Kiva for a loan of 5,000 Ukrainian Hryvnya to purchase seasonal clothing such as women's spring blouses, dresses, and skirts. Towards summer, there is a drop-off in retail sales, and it becomes necessary to invest more in order to make the same income as before. Silviya hopes to use the profit generated by this loan to continue the home renovation that she has already started, and that she has long wanted to complete.
