Tornike's story

Tornike is a 22-year-old, motivated student at Georgian Technical University. He's from Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and has parents and a brother.

He's struggling to pay part of his third-year tuition, so he started to seek funding from local creditors. Tornike has a great will to enhance his knowledge in law and international relations and studies hard to get the opportunity to become certified.

After requesting a loan from local creditors, he can receive the needed amount thanks to a joint initiative of Kiva and Credo Bank's Educational Program that gives poor people the chance to get a higher education.

Tornike is very confident about his potential. After graduation from the university, he believes he'll have a lot of opportunities to compete and will find a good job in his profession.
