Unfortunately, Merab lacks access to financial institutions to obtain credit for starting a business, as they require stable income and business experience. He received credit within the framework of a joint initiative of Kiva and Credo. The start-up program gives rural poor people the chance to start or re-start businesses. With the loan of $2,500, Merab will purchase basic groceries for starting a grocery store. His wife will work as a saleslady. With this assistance, the family will receive additional income and expand their business gradually. Merab awaits your kindness.
