A loan of $2,000 helped to renovate his house to rent it out.


Omar's story

Omar is 36 years old and lives in Batumi city with his wife and two children (13 and 15 years old), who go to the local school. Omar works as a plumber locally and installs the central heating as well. Omar owns a two-story house in the city center, and he wants to supplement his family's income by renovating a room on the first floor of his house so he can rent it out. Several people have already expressed an interest in living there, but he has been unable to get a loan from several local financial institutions to pay for renovations. That is why he is requesting a loan from Kiva and Credo, which help people who do not qualify for conventional loans. He will use the loan to buy the materials he needs to renovate his house. Omar hopes that renting out this room will be profitable and increase his income so that he and his family can improve their standard of living.
