Maguli's story

Maguli lives in the village Kutiri, West Georgia. She is 51 years old, married, and lives with her husband, Biktor, and her 75-year-old mother-in-law.

Maguli and Biktor have a small poultry farm. They purchase chicks, raise them and sell them in the village at wholesale prices. The total average monthly income of the family is 310 Laris, including the monthly pension of Maguli’s mother-in-law. According to Credo estimations, Maguli’s family belongs to the subsistence poor.

Maguli requested credit in the frames of the Kiva start-up program for purchasing a car. She will be able to take hens with this car to nearby villages and sell them at retail prices. Even taking into account the cost of transportation (fuel), the profit for the family will significantly increase. The family will be able to increase their spending on family members’ daily needs, in order to improve their living conditions.
