Manana's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to cultivate her fruit orchard.

Manana's story

Manana lives in Shashiani, Kakheti region in Eastern Georgia. There she cultivates a fruit orchard with her husband. Growing and selling kakis (Asian persimmons) and peaches is the only income for the family. In springtime there will be plenty of work to do so that the kaki trees produce a good harvest. With Kiva lenders' help she renovated the irrigation system last year and she repaid on time. Now she again is asking for help from Kiva lenders to do the same work this spring.

The repayments for this credit are scheduled in a way that allows Manana first to sell her fruit and then repay with the revenues.
