A loan of $2,000 helped to renovate a room so that it can be rented out.


Tsiala's story

Tsiala is 47 years old and lives in Batumi city with her husband. She owns a two-story house in the city center and rents out the first floor. The rent and her husband's pension are their only sources of income. Tsiala wants to supplement her family's income by renovating a room on the second floor of her house so she can rent it out. Several people have already expressed an interest in living there, but she has been unable to get a loan to pay for renovations from several local financial institutions. That is why she is requesting a loan from Kiva and Credo, which help people who do not qualify for conventional loans. She will use the loan to buy the materials she needs to renovate her house. Tsiala hopes that renting out this room will be profitable and increase her income so that she and her family can improve their standard of living.
