Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Ramaz's story

Ramaz is a 65-year-old married man. He lives in a small village of Tskaltubo district with his wife, son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. His wife is a teacher at a local school and gets 300 GEL per month. Ramaz is involved in agricultural activities. In particular, he has a cow and two calves, whose milk is used in making cheese products to sell. Ramaz decided to build a greenhouse and requested a loan. The Start Up program, which is a joint initiative with Kiva and Credo, enables him to get a loan of $3200. With the received credit he will purchase building materials and will build a greenhouse, where he will sow cucumbers and tomatoes to sell. The Start Up program will be a great support for the family.
