Khvicha's story

Khvicha is from the Kakheti Region in the district of Gurjaani. He is 42 years old. Khvicha lives with his pensioner mother, brother, and his family. The family is involved in agricultural activities. In particular, they have a vineyard and a plot of land, where different kinds of fruits are grown. In addition, they have a tractor to cultivate the land and a truck to transport cargo to different destinations. Khvicha decided to start his own business and requested a loan. The Start Up program, which is a joint initiative with Kiva and Credo, enables him to get a loan of $5000 to purchase a stock of seeds. As the seeds are purchased, he will start a trading business. He will purchase seeds at wholesale prices and then resell them with a price mark-up. This will increase the income of the family and Khvicha will be able to improve the living conditions of his family.
