Maka's story

Maka is a 38-year-old experienced farmer, from the village of Ratevani. She lives with her husband, parents-in-law, and two school-aged children. To take care of her family’s everyday needs, Maka is engaged in milking cows, breeding pigs, and cultivating of potatoes, maize, and beans. They also cultivate vineyard and sell wine for a good price. Maka's husband trades with the agricultural products at the local market, which is the main source of the family income.

Maka wants to be involved in another parallel activity, to ensure that she will be able to cover the monthly payments freely. A loan of 3,000 GEL will be a huge support to this hardworking woman and her family, enabling them to purchase stocks of clothing and start trading.

So she has now been approved for a loan within the framework of the new joint initiative between Kiva and Credo, which gives a chance for people to start or re-start businesses. Maka and her family will be thankful to all the lenders for helping them maintain their trading business.
