Zviad decided to contribute to the welfare of the family and start his own activity. He sold his second flat in order to buy a mini-bus for serving clients as a driver and to generate some income to increase his family's standard of living.
Zviad applied for a loan through MFO Credo, and was approved under the framework of a start-up program. This program is a joint initiative with Kiva that permits the rural poor to start or re-start businesses. A loan of $2,000 will help him to pay the mini-bus toll and then start a mini-bus line service. Zviad hopes to offer his family a higher quality of life and a more stable financial future.
