In particular, they have a plot of agricultural land, where they have walnut trees, maize and haricot beans. They work hard to have a good harvest, which is sold to local retailers. Her husband and son also work as artisans and get small additional income. Svetlana decided to start a husbandry business and requested a loan. The Start-up program, which is a joint initiative with Kiva and Credo enables her to get a loan of 3,100 GEL to purchase two cows. When the cows are purchased, Svetlana will start producing cheese to sell. The Start-up loan will be a great support for the family.
