Marekhi's story

Marekhi is from Mestia, village Mulakhi. She has a family which includes her husband, who is a private artisan and student son and daughter.

Marekhi is a kind and hardworking woman. She received a higher education, but can't find a stable job to earn money. She didn't lose hope though: Marekhi decided to open a guesthouse, as her district is very popular among tourists.

In order to get started, she needs to finish the renovation activity, which was started with family's saved money and purchase all needed inventories and furniture for the guesthouse.

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