Khatuna's story

Khatuna, who is a 24-year-old young woman, lives in the village of Sartichala. She has a husband and two infants. Her husband is an artisan and monthly he generates approximately 300 GEL. Khatuna doesn't have any stable activity. Thus, she is involved in an agribusiness. In particularl, Khatuna takes care of several chickens and sells eggs locally. She generates an insignificant income that isn't enough for her four-member family. Khatuna has a great desire to start a stable activity and requested a loan. Her application was approved with the joint initiative between Kiva and Credo. The start-up program gives people a chance to start or re-start businesses. She plans to purchase stock of clothing in Turkey and in the local wider market and sell it among her villagers.

This new activity will greatly help her to satisfy her children's increased needs and make a better living condition. Khatuna and her family will be thankful for all Kiva lenders.
