Valerian's story

Valerian is from the Sachkere district. He lives with his wife, 21-year-old son, and 27-year-old daughter. Valerian and his son work on renovation of houses. They both earn 300 Gel per month. His daughter graduated from pharmaceutical college and works as a pharmacist. In addition, the family runs an agricultural business. They have land where they grow different crops to sell. Valerian decided to get a loan and open a pharmacy, which his daughter will run. The Start Up program, which is a joint initiative with Kiva and MFO Credo, gives him a chance to get a loan of $3,500 for opening the pharmacy. Valerian will use the loan to purchase medicines and raw materials to make shelves. This will give the family a chance to be involved in their own business and earn a more stable income.
