George
George, age 23, is from Daba Kulashi, a small town in the western part of Georgia. He is married and lives with his wife, his father and his retired grandmother. George's mother lives and works abroad. She transfers money to her family and these funds are the only income for the family. George has a bachelor's degree in law but he is jobless at the moment.

He is a very energetic young man, who wishes to generate income for the well being of his family members.

He is requesting the loan to start up an internet cafe in his town. George managed to save some money to purchase needed equipment, but now he needs money to add three personal computers to his cafe.

George hopes his project will be lucrative especially among youngsters as the majority of local people still do not have personal computers and access to an internet connection at home. George will earn money and will be able to improve the family's living conditions in the future. He awaits your support.
