Elene's story

Elene, who is a 28-year-old, married woman, lives in Borjomi district. Her family members are her husband and her mother-in-law, who works at the hospital and generates an insignificant salary. Elene's husband has a state job and earns 700 GEL monthly. Elena doesn't have her own business, but she works at a private clinic as a dentist and her income is distributed to the owner of the clinic.

Now, she needs financial support to purchase a stock of tools and hardware to continue running her business herself. She has already had a large number of loyal and satisfied costumers and she can only progress by opening her own clinic. Elena has been approved for a loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and Credo. The start-up loan program provides business start-up loans with soft conditions to informal businesses that do not have access to credit products. The loan will greatly assist Elena and she will be able to improve her economic situation and give her family a better style of life.
