Durmishkhan's story

Durmishkhan is 28 years old and married with two children living in the village of Karajala, Kakheti Region. Durmishkhan’s mother lives with his family as well. Durmishkhan has a vocational education in welding but he doesn’t work in his profession and runs an agricultural business. He cultivates a plot of land where maize, onions and various vegetables are grown. Durmishkhan and his mother sell their harvested products as well as purchased vegetables at the neighboring town's open market. The existing funds are not enough for the family of five. In order to generate more income, Durmishkhan decided to purchase a second-hand car to use as a taxi. He will transport passengers from his district to the capital city in return for a service fee. The local people mainly use a taxi service to connect with the capital city and Durmishkhan’s service will have high demand. A loan of $ 3000 will help him to start his taxi business. Durmishkhan is a very enthusiastic and hard working person with a great desire to ensure his children have a good education to progress in life. This loan will be a great support for the family. Durmishkhan is thankful to Kiva lenders for giving him a chance to generate income.
