Nana requested loan from Credo to start up the family business. Nana has now been approved for a loan within the framework of the new joint initiative of Kiva and Credo. The start-up loan program envisages the provision of business start-up and re-start-up credits with soft conditions to rural poor people who do not have access to credit products. These rural poor people are regarded as “high risk borrowers” because of their low income. With his credit, Nana will renovate her house. She will purchase all the needed materials and pay the artisan. After the house is renovated, Nana will rent the rooms out during the summer season. Because Borjomi district is becoming very popular as a tourist area and every summer is very crowded, Nana hopes her business will be profitable. New business will significantly increase the family income, and Nana will be able to provide better living conditions for her family.
