Nikolai's story

Nikolai is from Khoost. For three years now, she has been selling fireworks for weddings and other celebrations and holidays. Nikolai rents a space in the center of the city to run his business. He does all the work himself - he doesn't have any hired workers. With the 30,000 hryvnia (UAH) received from Kiva, Nikolai plans to invest the funds in renovating his apartment. Nikolai wants to renovate his apartment with the goal of being able save money in the future on his utilities. Specifically, he wants to install new windows and doors (as the old ones let in the cold) and replace his old bathtub with a new one. Nikolai's dream is to own home one day and build a future for his still young son.
