Leila's story

Leila, 40, is from the village of Giorgitsminda and is married to Avtandil. They have three children, two daughters who work at the supermarket as salesladies and a son who is a school attendant. Leila and Avtandil fight for their children's future because they want them to become good people and to be able to study to progress in life.

The family runs an agricultural business and breeds three pigs and eight piglets. They also own a calf and several hens. Leila sells pork, piglets and eggs at the local open-air market.

All the family members work hard, but the existing income is not enough for a five-member family.

She has requested this loan to invest in the purchase of fruits and vegetables to start her business and generate revenue. Leila will sell products in her village among the community members.

The new business initiative, financed by Kiva lenders, will significantly increase the monthly income of the family and will improve their living conditions.
