A loan of $2,400 helped to start up a general store.


Mariam's story

Mariam is 53 years old. She is divorced and lives in the village of Vazisubani ("Street of Vine"--in Georgian) with her retired parents and two daughters. Mariam works as a veterinarian in her district and gets a small monthly salary. Her earnings are modest and Mariam decided to start up a business to earn extra money.

With the loan, Mariam will rent a store, install shelves and purchase merchandise for setting up a general store. She will buy a variety of household and daily-use consumer products and sell them from her store. Her daughters will help her in that business.

Mariam hopes her project will be profitable and generate income for improving the family's standard of living in the future.
