Gulo's story

Gulo is a 44-year-old married woman from Sagarejo district. She lives with her husband and son, who works in the mandatory army. The only person who generates income for the family's welfare is Gulo. She works as a private worker at many kinds of activities. She generates insignificant income that isn't enough to cover even everyday expenses. So the family lives in poverty and needs help to achieve normal living conditions.

This hard-working woman requested a loan to start her own stable business. But her request was rejected several times, due to her unstable financial condition. At last Gulo's request was approved thorugh the joint initiative between Kiva and Credo that gives people who are at a loss a chance to start their own businesses. So Gulo was approved for a loan of 3,000 GEL and plans to purchase stock of fruits and vegetables and start trading in her district.

Gulo and her family rely on the goodwill of lenders and highly appreciate Kiva lenders' help.
