Her current loan request was approved within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and Credo. The start-up loan program envisages the provision of business start-up and re-startup credits with soft conditions to the country's rural poor, who do not have access to credit products, being regarded as “high risk borrowers” because of their low incomes.
Manana owns a disordered plot of land, which she will clean and make even using the loan funds. After the land is leveled off, Manana will sell it in lots. This will improve the family's income and raise their standard of living. This will also help the family to earn enough income to access regular credit products available in the country’s capital market.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of Credo's startup loan program targeting particularly vulnerable clients who live at the subsistence level and have been unable to obtain credit due to lack of income from an existing business. This program offers them a longer repayment term and an annual interest rate that is 5% lower than the standard interest rate. By funding this loan, you are supporting a program that gives borrowers a second chance to start and grow small businesses. This has the potential to alleviate the effects of poverty, significantly improving borrowers' incomes and their families' quality of life.
