Lasha's story

Lasha is 20 years old and from Batumi city, where he lives with his father. Lasha works as a waiter at a local restaurant.

He decided to apply for a student loan, as he entered Batumi State Marine Academy and does not have enough income to meet the educational expenses of the first academic year.

Student loans are a joint project of Kiva and its field partner Credo Bank, which gives Georgian students the chance to get an education. Lasha studies in the marine navigation faculty and wants to be employed in the marine field after getting his higher education.

Lasha hopes he will have a good wage after graduating with a baccalaureate degree to create financial stability for his family.
