Mamuka's story

Mamuka is 48 years old. He lives in the Kutaisi District in the Imereti Region. He is married and lives with his family: wife – Natia, 7-year-old daughter and father (90 years old). Mamuka and Natia work as teachers in a local school. Their daughter goes to school. Mamuka’s father is retired. The average monthly income for the family is 650 Laris, including the pension of Mamuka’s father. Mamuka requested credit to restart a family-owned small poultry farm. He has all necessary equipment for the farm. He stopped the business a year ago because of lack of means for turnover. With the requested Kiva loan, Mamuka will purchase chickens and food for them. In 3 months, Mamuka will start selling the hens in a nearby town’s open market. The income of the family will significantly increase. Part of the increased income will be reinvested in the same business to expand it, and another part will be used for improving the family's living conditions.
