Jilda's story

Jilda is a 29-year-old married woman. She lives with her husband, child, and parents-in-law. Her father-in-law is provided with a retirement pension. Jilda works at a local kindergarten and earns 150 GEL per month. Her husband is unemployed now. As the income is not enough to cover their everyday costs, Jilda requested a loan. The Start Up program, which is a joint initiative with Kiva and Credo, enables her to get a loan of 3,000 GEL to purchase calves. She will raise them and start producing dairy products to sell. The Start Up program will be a great support for her family.
