Nana's story

Nana is a 47-year-old woman. She lives in Akhmeta district with her son and daughter-in-law who are students. Nana graduated from pedagogical college and works as a teacher at the local public school. Unfortunately, a teacher’s salary is not enough to make ends meet for a family. In the region there is a high unemployment rate, but self-employment helps inhabitants to make a living. So, she decided to start a husbandry business but the local credit providers usually demand experience and some stable income from borrowers. Her credit requests were rejected several times, as she was unable to satisfy their requirements. She received the credit in the framework of a joint initiative of Kiva and Credo - Startup Program that gives rural poor people the chance to start or re-start businesses. With the loan of $3700, Nana will purchase a milking cow and a pig. She will also purchase building materials and build a cattle shed. Nana will produce dairy products to sell and she will generate more income. The Start Up credit will be a great support for the family, as their income will be significantly increased.
