Magamed is a 42-year-old man from the village of Karajalari. He lives with his wife and two little children. The family is involved in agricultural activities. In particular, they have a plot of agricultural land where they grow greens, but they earn insignificant income from selling them. It's hardly enough to pay all family costs and satisfy the needs of a four-member family. Magamed is motivated to improve the living conditions of his family and increase agricultural activity. He requested a loan 3,000 GEL to purchase chickens and, after raising them, start selling their eggs. He received the credit through a joint initiative between Kiva and Credo, a start-up program that gives rural poor people the chance to start or re-start a business. Magamed and his family rely on the goodwill of the lenders and will greatly appreciate their support.
