Tarieli's story

Tarieli is a 44-year-old married man who lives in Samtredia, West Georgia. He lives with wife and a little son. Tarieli's wife is a cleaner in a restaurant and gets 200 GEL monthly. Tarieli works as a driver for road construction. He has several private orders during the month. Approximately his income consists 300 GEL per month. However, this income is hardly enough for the family, considering the fact that Tarieli can generate more if he has a vehicle and works as taxi driver everyday, in parallel to his present activities. Tarieli has now been approved for a loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and Credo, that helps rural people to start or restart businesses. This loan is very important for Tarieli to be able to start providing taxi service and gain more income for his family. He awaits your support.
