Maia's story

Maia is from a rural town in Becho, Mestia. Her community is very small, and the main industry is tourism. Maia lives with her husband, who works at the border police, and their children.

In the region, there is high unemployment, but self-employment helps inhabitants to make a living. So Maia started a hostel. She rents rooms to tourists and Georgian people as well and gets income, especially during the season.

As she found out that demand is high, Maia decided to add other rooms and private bathrooms with the requested amount.

Parallel with her private activity, Maia works in a social service agency.

She is a very enthusiastic and hardworking person with a great desire to create better living conditions for her family. This loan will be a great support for them. Maia is thankful to Kiva lenders for giving her a chance to generate income.
