A loan helped to pursue a degree in Geography.

Gvantsa's story

Gvantsa, whose two loan requests were raised on Kiva, is very grateful for each lenders' participation in her success. The financial support was the main problem in her life and without this support, she will never get an appropriate education.

Now she will have a respected certificate and qualification to start working in her profession.

Gvantsa found a cashier job, where she works in her free time, and also is involved in a trading business with jewelry and somehow covers her living costs in the capital.

According to her lecturers’ recommendations, Gvantsa is a very hardworking young woman who will get ahead. She is requesting a student loan in order to pay her tuition fees and continue studying.

Gvantsa relies on the goodwill of the lenders and will do her best to get through this life challenge and become a highly educated person, with the great assistance of Kiva lenders.
