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

A loan helped to renovate the house and open a guesthouse for tourists.

Nino's story

Nino is from Mestia, in the village of Latali. She has a family which includes her husband, who is a pensioner, and her son, who works as an engineer on a small monthly wage.

Nino is a kind and hardworking woman. She has a higher education and works as a teacher.

Nino decided to open a guesthouse, as her district is very popular among tourists. In order to get started, Nino needs to finish the renovation activity, which was started with the family's saved money, and purchase all the necessary inventory and furniture for the hostel.

Currently Nino does not have enough money, so she is turning to you for support. Please help her! She is depending on your support.
