A loan of $2,300 helped to set up a poultry farm.


Maia's story

Maia, who is a 46-year-old woman, lives in the village of Argveta. Her husband died at an early age and Maia was obliged to lead the family. Since then Maia has been engaged in agricultural activities. She cultivates a plot of family-owned land, harvests nuts and sells them locally. Also she takes care of a small vineyard and gets grapes seasonally. Maia has two school-aged sons, and she does everything to try and ensure they have a better style of life. She has great desire somehow to increase her income and expand her business.

Maia requested a loan and was approved in the framework of the joint initiative between Kiva and Credo, that gives people chance to start or re-start businesses. So Maia plans to set up a poultry farm, purchase chickens and food for them. After raising them, Maia will sell them at a good price and get a good profit.

The loan is really necessary for her, as she will get chance to improve her financial situation and give a good education to her sons. Maia and her family will be thankful to all the lenders for helping them maintain their agribusiness.
