Tina
Tina lives in the Senaki district. She is 52 years old, married and lives with her daughter, son-in-law, grandchild and husband. The source of income for the family is an agricultural business. They breed four milk cows and make cheese which is sold at the local open market.

Tina and her husband, Rauli, decided to start a new business as their existing income wasn't enough for the family. Her loan request was approved in the frame of a new joint initiative between Kiva and Credo. The start-up loan program envisages the provisions of business start-up and re-startup credits with soft conditions to the country's rural poor, who do not have access to credit products, being regarded as “high risk borrowers” because of their low incomes. With the loan, Tina will purchase a car and Rauli will serve the local people as a taxi driver. The income of the family will increase, and they will be able to improve their living conditions in the future.

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. Learn more about Credo's startup loan program on the Kiva Blog.
