Tinatin's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to renovate her house to open a guesthouse.

Tinatin's story

Tinatin is a 39-year-old housekeeper who has a professional education but is unable to start working within her profession because she has 3 infants to care for on her own.

Tinatin's husband, who is the only breadwinner in the family, generates a really small income for covering even the basic needs of the family. Tinatin also runs a small agribusiness in order to get a small income for her children.

She didn't lose hope, though. Tinatin decided to open a guesthouse, as her district is very popular among tourists.

In order to get started, she needs to renovate the house and purchase all the needed inventory and furniture to start getting tourists in her guesthouse.

Tinatin currently does not have enough money, and she is turning to you for support. Please help her!
