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

A loan helped to renovate a house and rent it to tourists.

Nino's story

Nino is from the village of Dzirageuli, in Ambrolauri . She only has a father, who is an electrician and earns a small income. Nino is a housekeeper, and she is a kind and hardworking woman. She never received a higher education, so it is hard for her to find a job and earn money.

She didn't lose hope, though. Nino decided to open a hostel, as her district is very popular among tourists. In order to get started, she needs to renovate the house and make it available for tourists to rent.

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