Pikria is a 28-year-old married woman from Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. She lives with her husband. As she can't find any stable job, in spite of her high education, she decided to start her own business and opened a taxi company. She has several employees and has her own phone line. The clients are satisfied with the service and with the prices, too. Therefore, the market demand is high and her company has a lot of bookings.

Pikria decided to expand her activity and invest some money in it. She requested a loan to purchase additional transmitters and add another phone line. Pikria will employ more people in her business and will also expand her profits as a result of this loan.

Pikria will be really grateful for the help, as she will be better able to meet all the daily costs and improve the living conditions of her family.
