Eka's story

Eka, who is 38 years old, is from the village Daba Jvari. She has two sons, and one of them is employed at a state job and gets a fixed income.

Eka works as a nanny, as there is a high unemployment rate in the region. She has great desire to be involved in an additional business and increase the living conditions of her family. Eka’s credit requests were rejected several times, as she was unable to satisfy their requirements.

She received the credit in the framework of a joint initiative of Kiva and Credo — the Startup Program that gives rural poor people the chance to start or restart businesses. Eka plans to start a trading business with used clothing and bed linens by purchasing stock of products at wholesale prices and selling in her community with price mark-ups.

She is a very enthusiastic and hardworking person with a great desire to ensure her sons a good style of life. This credit will be a great support for the family.

Eka is thankful to Kiva lenders for giving her a chance to generate additional income.
