Zaza is 33 years old and married. He has five children. He lives in the Marneuli district. The family lives below the poverty line and gets a small-sized social assistance from the local government. To generate income for his large family, Zaza hires a car and serves the locals as a taxi driver. He has been in this business for a month and he transports people from his district to the capital city. The project is profitable but the rent for the car is high so Zaza decided to purchase his own car.

Zaza is requesting a loan for $2,000, which will enable him to continue his taxi business and earn a good income. He is a very experienced driver and a hardworking person with a great desire to ensure that his children receive a good education.
