A loan helped to renovate her house to rent it.


Tamari's story

Tamari is 33 years old single woman from Tbilisi. She lives with her parents and brother.

Tamar was unable to get a high education and that's why she can't find a stable job. Currently, she works as a sales manager at a shoes store and gets a small income. In order to increase her income Tamari decided to renovate her house and rent it daily to tourists.

Tamari received this loan in the framework of a joint initiative between Kiva and the Credo - Startup Program. This credit program gives poor people the chance to start or re-start businesses. With this loan Tamari will purchase the equipment and materials needed to renovate her flat for renting.

According to her estimation, demand will be high, as the location where her flat is located is crowded with tourists. This loan will greatly assist Tamari and she will be able to improve her economic situation and give her family a better style of life.


This loan is special because:

It helps vulnerable women start a new business.
