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

A loan helped to buy a dairy cow to produce milk-based products.

Neli's story

Neli is a 55-year-old single woman from the village of Marani which is in the Samtredia district. She lives alone and cultivates a plot of agricultural land to grow nuts to sell locally. Neli works really hard to be financially stabile, that is why she takes care of an older woman who lives in her village. She earns 250 GEL monthly which is hardly enough to meet her daily expenses. Neli has a great desire to expand her agribusiness through dairy farming. She will purchase a dairy cow with the requested money, produce milk-based products, and sell them locally. The Start Up credit will be a great support for her and she has sincere regards for the Kiva lenders. Neli awaits and highly appreciates your support.
