A loan of $5,775 helps to make bathrooms in her guesthouse.


Bela's story

Bela is from Mestia, where she lives with her husband. The family gets income from selling used furniture at the local market.

Bela is a kind and hardworking woman. In spite of her higher education, she can't find a job. She didn't lose hope, though and decided to open a guesthouse, since her district is very popular among tourists.

In order to get started, she needs to finish renovations, which were started with money the family had saved, and renovate 4 bathrooms in the guesthouse.

Currently, Bela does not have enough money, and she is turning to you for support. Please help her! She is depending on your support.
