A loan of $2,300 helped to buy pastry dishes and start private baking.

Rusudan's story

Rusudan, who is a 33-year-old single woman, lives in Batumi city, west Georgia. She lives with her sister and her son, and both members are temporarily unemployed. The only source of the family's income is Rusudan's job, working as a baker at a private company. Her generated salary consists of 400 GEL per month.

However, this income is hardly enough for a 3-member family to cover all daily costs and basic needs, so Rusudan decided to get another source of income alongside her main activity. For more than 3 years she has worked as a baker and has great experience in making good confectionery products.

Her request has now been approved within the framework of Kiva and Credo, so she is able to use a start-up loan for starting a private baking business in her house and getting private orders. The loan of 2,300 USD will help her to purchase a stock of merchandise such as pastry dishes. Rusudan thinks that the business will be profitable, as she will gain the loyalty of people by making a good product. This additional income will enable her to cover everyday costs as well as expand the business in future.
