Maka's story

Maka is a 40-year-old, widowed woman, who lives in the village of Berbuki, in Gori District. She lives alone with her two children and she takes care of them.

Maka has been involved in a trading business for the past year. She goes to the biggest market in the capital, where she buys products at wholesale prices and then sells them among her villagers. She is hard-working and determined, with a will to get ahead in life.

Her plan now is to continue to work on her business and to make it grow. Maka applied for the loan to LLC Micro Finance Organization Credo. Her request was approved in the framework of a Start Up program, which is a joint initiative with Kiva, permitting the rural poor to start or re-start businesses.

A loan of GEL 1,200 will help Maka to enlarge the quantity of products she sells. With this financial support, Maka will expand her business and attract more customers.

The Start Up credit will be a great support for the family, as their income will be increased. Maka gives her regards to Kiva Lenders and she hopes she can make better life conditions for her children.
