Senaki, Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti, Georgia / Education

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

A loan helped to pay for higher education fees in pharmacy studies.

Uliana's story

Uliana lives in the city of Senaki with her mother, who is a saleswoman at a flower store. She works hard to cover the daily expenses and to give a good education to Uliana, but her earnings are modest and Uliana decided to apply for a student loan.

The student loan is a joint project between Kiva and the field partner Credo Bank, which gives a chance to Georgian students to get an education. She studies pharmacy at Sokhumi State University. She thinks that a pharmacist is a highly-demanded position and she will be able to be employed easily after graduation. Uliana hopes she will have a good wage and be able to help her mother to provide better living conditions.
