Natia is 29 years old, divorced and from the village Vardisubani. She has two children and lives with her parents, who get monthly assistance from local government. The family is slightly involved in agriculture, growing wheat and selling it locally. Natia works as a saleslady at the store and earns a monthly income of 220 GEL. Sometimes she gets products from the store at wholesale prices and sells them among her neighbors. However this income is hardly enough for her five-member family. So, Natia decided to help her father start his own taxi business and generate some income for the family's welfare. With the requested loan she wants to purchase a car and let her father work as taxi driver. This additional income will be great support for her family and they highly appreciate Kiva lenders' help.
