Marika's story

Marika is 23 years old. She is married and lives with her husband Giorgi in the Khashuri district.The only source of income for the family is Giorgi's small monthly income working at a local petrol station. Marika married at an early age and wasn’t able to get an education. She has no university degree, which is one of the main reasons for her unemployment. She has a great desire to be involved in the trading business. Marika couldn’t request a loan from financial institutions until the Start Up program began, which is a joint product of Kiva and Credo. She requested a loan of 2,500 USD to begin trading in jewelry. She plans to purchase the products at wholesale prices and then resell among her friends and villagers. This will give her a chance to earn income.
