A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase equipment to open a dental clinic.

Lia's story

Lia is a 66-year-old woman. She lives in Tkibuli district, eastern Georgia. Lia trades agate gems. The income from this business is not enough for her to cover everyday costs. Lia graduated from dental college. She decided to open a dental clinic with a loan and sought credit among financial institutions. All her attempts were rejected because of a lack of experience and financial stability.

The startup program, which is joint initiative with Kiva and Credo, gives her a chance to get a loan of $2,000 and purchase dental equipment. As the equipment is purchased, she will open a clinic in her house and will serve local people from home. The startup program will be a great support for her to be involved in her own stable business.
