Nazibrola owns an internet café and David is working at the local water company. Nazibrola’s daughter in law is a seller at the clothes shop. They all work on small monthly salaries.
Nazibrola requested a loan from Credo to start a family business. Nazibrola 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 her credit, Nazibrola will purchase more computers for her internet café. As not everybody has internet in their houses, people go to the internet café to use the service. Nazibrola is planning to expand her business. After purchasing more computers, she will be able to serve more people and earn better profit. With the increased profit, she will be able to provide better living conditions for her family.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of Credo's startup loan program targeting particularly vulnerable clients who live at the subsistence level and have been unable to obtain credit due to lack of income from an existing business. This program offers them a longer repayment term and an annual interest rate that is 5% lower than the standard interest rate. By funding this loan, you are supporting a program that gives borrowers a second chance to start and grow small businesses. This has the potential to alleviate the effects of poverty, significantly improving borrowers' incomes and their families' quality of life.
