Tinatin's story

Tinatin is a 61-year-old married woman from Kutaisi city. She has an unemployed husband and a son who gets a fixed income that is hardly enough for her family to have financial stability. Tinatin wants to make her own income and somehow increase the living conditions of her family.

According to the above mentioned situation, Tinatin lacks the access to capital markets and financial institutions to obtain credit for starting a business, as they require stable income and business experience. The Start Up program created by Kiva and Credo enabled Tinatin to get a loan of 3,000 USD and start a family business. She will start renovating a place and purchase all needed tools for opening a canteen locally. Tinatin will serve the clients on her own and will get a stable income, which will become additional assistance for covering all family expenses.

The Start Up credit will be a great support for the family, as their income will be significantly increased thanks to Kiva lenders.
