The family's existing income is too small to cover daily expenses. That is why Ekaterine has decided to purchase a car so that her husband can work as a taxi driver. Ekaterine’s husband is jobless and was unable to find an appropriate job because there is a high unemployment rate in the region. With the credit received, Ekaterine will purchase a car, and it will be used as a taxi. Her husband will work as a driver to increase the family's income. Local people often use taxi services because the minibus line works hourly and they have to wait for transportation for a long time. The new business initiative, financed with this Kiva start-up loan, will significantly improve the living conditions of the family.
