Irma's story

Irma is a 42-year-old married woman from Batumi city. She lives with her husband, daughter and grandson. Nowadays, the only source of the family's income is Irma's daughter's job. She works as a waiter and monthly gets 400 GEL. Irma had her own business during the summer. She opened a cafe and had good yields. Considering that season has gone and Irma wants a stable income to meet all daily costs, she decided to start a similar activity, but not seasonal. She requested a loan for opening a cafe at the center of the city. Irma has already found a place and needs money for renovating it. She will be involved in the cafe's everyday work. This new business will give Irma a chance to make financial stability for her family and to get a monthly income. She looks forward to help from Kiva lenders.
