Tamaz's story

Tamaz is a 57-year-old, married man. He lives with his wife, two children, and mother in a small village of the Martvili district. His mother is provided with a retirement pension.

Tamaz is actively involved in agricultural activities. In particular, he has two cows, a calf, and a pig. His wife milks the cows every day and produces dairy products to sell. In addition, Tamaz has nut trees and 0.3 hectares of land where maize is grown. He sells the harvested products to local retailers at a good price.

Tamaz decided to start a new business and requested a loan. The start-up program, which is a joint initiative between Kiva and Credo, enables him to get a loan of GEL 1,000 to start a new business. He will begin to locally trade in meat and fish. This will increase his income and, after that, he will be able to improve the living conditions of his family.
