A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for mushroom seeds and fertilizer.


Koryun's story

Koryun has been involved in mushroom production for 15 years. He produces mainly champignons and sells them at local markets. Koryun lives with his wife and three grown-up children, who help their father with production.

Now, to be able to produce more mushrooms and increase sales, Koryun needs financial support. He asks for this loan to purchase mushroom seeds and fertilizer. Koryun has now been approved for a loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF international. The start-up loan program provides business start-up loans with soft conditions to informal businesses that do not have access to credit products.

Koryun will be very grateful to all the lenders, and the loan will greatly assist with the production of mushrooms.
