A loan helped to finish renovation activity to open a guesthouse.


Liana's story

Liana is from Surami resort, quite a popular place among tourists and especially among Georgian people who spend their children's holidays there. Liana is a gynecologist and gets a small fixed income. She has started renovating the house with her savings and now requires financial assistance to finish it and start renting the guesthouse.

She requested a loan from Credo and was approved in the framework of a joint initiative of Kiva and Credo. The startup loan program provides business startup and re-startup credit to the rural poor, who do not usually have access to credit products because they are regarded as “high risk borrowers” due to low income.

With the loan, Liana will purchase furniture and finish interior renovation in order to get her business started.

Liana will be very grateful for the chance to make a significant source of income and have a better style of life.


This loan is special because:

It helps vulnerable women start a new business.
