Ketevan's story

Ketevan is a 45-year-old married woman. She lives with her husband, daughter, son, and daughter-in-law. Her daughter is a sales lady in a store and her son works as an artisan in a workshop. Their salaries, however, are not enough to meet the basic needs of their families. In order to do her bit to help the welfare of the family, Ketevan decided to open a general store. She has just opened it with her funds, sells various kind of food and home products and needs money for further development. Ketevan couldn't receive a loan from the local financial institutions because of their requirements to have business experience or stable revenue, until the Start Up program began, which is a joint product between Kiva and Credo. She requested a loan of 1,500 USD to purchase a stock of needed products. This will give her a chance to earn income and become financially independent. Regards with the Start Up program, Ketevan will be able to expand her business and increase the productivity.
