A loan of $3,000 helped to purchase a van to use in the trading business.


George's story

George, 35, is from the village of Chuneshi in Georgia. He lives with his wife, two children and retired mother as well as an aunt.

The family runs an agricultural business, breeding pigs and selling piglets at the local open market. They run a dairy farm as well and sell cheese to retailers. In addition, George owns a vineyard and a nut garden. The harvested grapes are used to produce wine for selling.

Besides his agricultural activities, George works at a printing house to earn a monthly income. All the family members work hard, but their existing income is not enough for a family their size.

George has requested this loan to purchase a van, which he will use in the trading business. He will purchase fruits and vegetables from nearby villages and sell them at a price mark-up in another district. He will renew his assortment every morning and offer fresh products to his customers.

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