440 veteran businesses received financial support from the Ukrainian Veteran Foundation of the Ministry of Veterans Affairs of Ukraine.
In the summer of 2022, we launched the “20 thousand” microfinancing program. Applications for the first #Varto competition were opened in September 2022.
We are happy that in less than two years of operation, the Foundation managed to support veteran businesses in the amount of UAH 121.9 million as of today.
And this sum is growing every day. Almost every region of Ukraine has veteran enterprises that are growing thanks to the victory in #Varto contests and the “20 thousand” program from the UVF.
Most of them are situated in:
Kyiv and Kyiv region – 121
Lvivska – 48
Vinnytsia – 33
These are large farms and small coffee shops, agricultural drones and veteran publishing houses, eventually toy workshops, rehabilitation centers, industrial UAV production. All these businesses became the winners of our competition programs.
