Izolda's story

Izolda is a 60-year-old woman. She lives with her son in a small village of the Gardabani district. She is provided with a retirement pension. Her son is an artisan in building and gets GEL 250 per month.

Izolda decided to run her own dairy business, so she has requested a loan for purchasing a cow and food for it. The Start Up program, which is a joint initiative with Kiva and Credo, gives her a chance to get a loan of GEL 1,500. She will purchase a cow and will milk it every day to produce cheese products to sell.

She is very motivated to have her own business and plans to sell her cheese in local markets.
