Guram's story

Guram is a 25-year-old married man. He lives with his wife, two children and grandparents in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. His grandparents are provided with a retirement pension. In the region there is a high unemployment rate, but self-employment helps inhabitants to make a living. Guram has a newly opened fast food business and needs money to purchase stock. He received credit in the framework of a joint initiative of Kiva and Credo - Startup Program that gives rural poor people the chance to start or re-start businesses. With the loan of $2000, he will purchase stock and will offer a wide assortment of fast foods to his customers. The Start Up credit will be a great support for the family, as their income will be significantly increased thanks to Kiva Lenders.
