Besik's story

Besik is a 32-year-old, married man, with two children, living in a suburb of the capital city, Tbilisi. Besik’s wife stays at home, taking care of her children. Besik is self-employed and serves the people with his own car. He works on special orders and mainly tourists are his regular clients. Unfortunately, several days ago his car was out of order and it’s impossible for Besik to continue working. He is requesting the credit to fix the car. Besik's request was approved in the framework of a start-up program, which is a joint initiative between Kiva and Micro Finance Organization Credo (MFO Credo), permitting the vulnerable poor to start or re-start businesses. A loan of USD 650 will help Besik to pay for the maintenance of his car. He will continue working and will transport the passengers throughout the country. Besik is a very enthusiastic and hard-working person, with a great desire to provide his children with a good education for progressing in life. This credit will be a great support for the family. Besik is thankful to Kiva lenders for giving him a chance to generate income.
