Lubov's story

Lubov sells merchandise used for ceremonies at the city's central market. She has used KIVA loans before and considers them useful for her business. One year ago, thanks to a KIVA loan, Lubov was able to make wreathes for sale and increase her income. That is why this year Lubov also wants to take advantage of a loan and take out an amount three times bigger than the last time - 15,000 UAH. This amount will allow Lubov to develop her business and, as a result, fundamentally improve her family's welfare.
