EthicCapital Credit Union
Approved to post Kiva loans from: Georgia
Unemployment in Georgia is very high due to an underdeveloped industrial sector. The majority of people work independently as farmers or small shop owners.
Many Georgian farmers are unable to borrow the capital they need to expand their production in a sustainable way. EthicCapital is a non-profit credit union that offers low-interest financial services to rural farmers. The non-profit also provides additional services that include consulting, networking, marketing and training. EthicCapital’s borrowers show strong initiative to improve their living conditions by growing their operations and improving their production capabilities.
A unique lending approach:
EthicCapital targets rural farmers who cannot access mainstream financial institutions. The loans focus on up-and-coming categories such as organic agriculture, ecological production, sustainable development and renewable energy.
Georgia is an agricultural nation with a high potential for organic production.
