Ana's story

Ana is a 19-year-old woman from Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. She lives with just her mother, who is the only breadwinner in the family.

Ana intends to get higher education at the University of Georgia. She finds it hard to tackle the financial difficulties related to tuition fees. After requesting a loan among local credit providers, Ana received the needed amount through the framework of a joint initiative of Kiva and Credo Bank-- Educational Program that gives poor people the chance to pursue higher education.

Ana is a very motivated person who is confident about her potential. She believes that after graduating from the university, she will have a lot of opportunities to compete and will find a good job in her profession.
