Lela's story

Lela is 42 years old and temporarily unemployed. She lives with her husband and 2 school-aged children in Chiatura district. The only source of income for this family of four is Lela's husband's job, which is working at the mane. He only has 400 GEL per month in order to meet the family's basic needs.

Lela has a great desire to start her own activities to meet her family's needs. She has requested a loan of 750 USD to start a trading business in clothing. She will purchase a stock of clothing in Turkey at wholesale prices and then sell the clothes in her community. With the help of this activity, Lela will do her bit to improve her family's welfare and avoid financial difficulty. She looks forward to her Kiva lenders' help.
