A loan of $2,650 helped to increase her inventory for the upcoming autumn season.


Svetlana's story

Svetlana lives and works in Novaya Kohovka. She sells women's sportswear in the local market, renting her stall from the market's administration, which has enabled many small businesses here that cannot yet afford to buy their own stores. Svetlana has been running her business for 19 years. Currently her main products are T-shirts, sweaters, shorts and sports suits.

With the 31,000 hryvnia from Kiva, Svetlana plans to buy jackets, vests, pants, and warm outfits for the coming autumn and winter seasons. Having sufficient retail experience, quality merchandise and competitive prices, as well as an interest in the field, Svetlana plans to continue her business into the future, and grow the business to provide for her family.
