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

A loan helped to get her bachelor's degree in law and gain an education.

Elene's story

Elene studies law at Caucasus University. She received her previous loan from Kiva to cover her higher education expenses and pursue her bachelor's degree.

Elene 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.

Elene has now requested a third 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.
