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

A loan helped to gain a bachelor's degree in law.

Salome's story

Salome, who is a private nurse nowadays, received her first loan from Kiva to cover her higher education expenses and pursue a bachelor's degree. She studies law at Georgian University of Patriarchate.

She is a favorite student due to her organized behavior, high academic presence, and great sense of responsibility. She studies hard for the opportunity to find a stable and well-paying job to make a successful future career for herself.

Salome has now requested a second Kiva loan to pay for her second academic year at the university. She assures Kiva lenders that she will work hard and receive good grades. This will lead to a successful career, enabling her to repay the loan.

She hopes for Kiva support.
