A loan of $2,575 helped to purchase women's winter shoes for retail sale.


Tatyana's story

Tatyana is an entrepreneur from Zaporozhye. She sells women's shoes. Thanks to her previous Kiva loan, Tatyana increased her sales turnover and received additional profits.

Tatyana is a widow who lives with her son. This year, they sold the part of their house where they lived and moved into an apartment. An apartment requires less upkeep than a house, so its now easier for Tatyana and she has more time for her business and her son.

Tatyana took part in a shoe exposition with her products. This helped her to find out the latest trends and make correct decisions when purchasing shoes. Tatyana is asking for a loan in the amount of 21,000 hryvnia to buy women's winter shoes. She hopes to receive additional profits and continue to help her son pay for college, where he is currently studying.
