Givi’s mother is working abroad. She is sending transfers to Givi. Also, he is renting out rooms in his house to get a small monthly income.
Givi requested a loan from Credo to start-up a family business. Givi has now been approved for a loan within the framework of the new joint initiative between Kiva and Credo. The start-up loan program envisages provision of business start-up and re-startup credits, with soft conditions to rural poor people, who do not have access to credit products. These rural poor people are regarded as 'high-risk borrowers' because of their low income.
With his credit, Givi will purchase a car. He will start driving it as a taxi and will serve local people, to earn additional daily income. Givi is a very hard-working man. He wants to start his own business and increase the family income. With the increased income, he will be able to improve his living conditions and provide a better future for himself.
