Manana's story

Manana is from Meria, a village in Ozurgeti region. She is 48 years old and lives with her husband, 2 children and mother-in-law. The family's significant income is from agricultural activities. Manana and her husband cultivate agricultural land and grow nuts and maize. They are also extensively engaged in cattle and pig breeding, and in producing milk-products from 2 milked-cows they take care of. All mentioned products are sold to the local market. This income, however, is not enough to meet the basic needs of her family. As it becomes harder to earn a living over time, Manana wants to expand her agribusiness in order to more effectively meet their daily expenses. She received credit in the framework of a joint initiative between Kiva and Credo. The Start-up Program gives rural poor people the chance to start or re-start businesses. A loan of 4,000 GEL will be a great support to this hardworking woman and her family, enabling her to set up a poultry farm, buy chickens and nutrition vitamins and, after raising them, she will get significant earnings. Manana relies on the goodwill of the lenders and greatly appreciates their support.
