A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase a car.


Elmira's story

Elmira is a 53-year-old woman. She lives with her son, Magarram, and daughter-in-law in a small village of Gardabani district. They are not employed now. The family’s only source of income is her husband’s and son’s salary. They work in Russia. Their village is far from the town, and there is no convenient public transportation to the town. In the village there is a low employment rate, and people who are employed have to go to town by taxi. They have already found a car to buy for Magarram to use as a taxi, and Elmira decided to request a loan for purchasing it. The Start Up program, which is joint initiative with Kiva and MFO Credo, gives her a chance to get a loan of $2,000. After purchasing a car, Magarram will serve local people as a taxi driver and generate income. He already has a driver’s license.
