Give is a mini-bus driver and works for a shop that sells fruits and vegetables to earn small income for the family. Also his mother is trading with clothes. She buys at the wholesale price from the big market in the capital city and resells them among the villagers.
Givi requested loan from Credo to start-up family business. Givi 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 provision of business start-up and re-startup 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 Givi will purchase stocks of vegetables to start trading. He will by the products at the wholesale price from the resellers to sell it with the price markup at the local market, where he already has his own counter. Givi is already experienced in this field. He will earn a profit and use it for reinvesting and purchasing more verities of vegetables in order to expand the business. The new business initiative, financed with the Kiva Start-up loan will significantly improve the living conditions of the family.
