Aliona's story

Aliona is a 33-year-old married woman. She lives with her husband and two children. Aliona is currently unemployed. Her husband works on renovations and gets 250 GEL per month. As the existing income is not enough for her family, Aliona decided to request a loan and start her own business. The Start Up program, which is a joint initiative with Kiva and Credo, enables her to get a loan of $ 700. With the received credit she will purchase a stock of clothing from the wholesalers and then start trading. This will increase her income and she will be able to improve the living conditions for her family.
