A loan of $300 helped to begin selling clothes.

Nino's story

Nino is 30 years old, a young divorced woman. She lives with her two young children in Kutaisi, West Georgia. The only source of income for her is money transfers from her mother. Nino married at an early age and wasn’t able to get an education and so she has no university degree, which is one of the main reasons for her unemployment. She looks after her children and stays home, but she has a great desire to be involved in a trading business.

Nino couldn’t request a loan from financial institutions, until the Start Up program began, which is a joint program of Kiva and Credo. She requested a loan of 300 USD to begin selling clothing. She plans to go to Turkey and purchase the products at wholesale prices and then resell them among her friends and villagers. This will give her a chance to earn income and not have to depend on her mother. Nino will provide a better future for her children.
