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

A loan helped to pay tuition at Batumi State Maritime Academy.

Nikol's story

Nikol, who's received two Kiva loans, is very grateful for each lender's participation in her success. Financial support was her main problem and without it she wouldn't have gotten an appropriate education. Now she'll have a respected certificate and qualify to start working in business.

According to her lecturers’ recommendations, Nikol is a very hardworking young woman who'll get ahead. She's requesting a student loan to pay tuition for her third academic year.

Nikol promises to make payments on time and do her best to maintain a successful career.
