Joni's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to make his first semester payment to the University.

Joni's story

Joni is an ambitious young man from Zugdidi. He is a first semester student at the State University, where he is majoring in Georgian Language and Literature. It is hard to continue studying at the university, since he has no source of income or help from his family.

Joni sought out a loan to finance his first year tuition fees.
Credo approved his student loan through a joint project with Kiva, which gives Georgian students a good chance to invest money in their education.

Joni wants to have the opportunity to find a stable job in his field and generate significant income after graduation. He really appreciates support from the lenders, as his life will greatly improve with their help.
