Lamzira's story

Lamzira is 26 years old and a married woman from the village of Dzevri, Terjola district. She lives with her parents, husband and two kindergarten-aged sons. Lamzira's father works at a stone shop and generates 200 GEL monthly. Her husband gets 100 GEL in social assistance from the local government, as they live in poverty.

Lamzira works hard in agricultural activities. She has two milk cows, sells cheese locally, and also cultivates grapes. Lamzira has great desire to improve the living conditions of her family and increase their income. She lacks access to capital markets and financial institutions to obtain credit for starting up a business, as those institutions require stable income and business experience.

The Start Up program created by Kiva and Credo enabled Lamzira to get a loan of 1700 GEL and start up a business. She will purchase clothing at wholesale prices and then sell it at a good price among her friends and villagers. The loan will be a huge support for this motivated woman to ensure her family with a better future. She awaits your support.
