Roin creates high quality products to keep his customers happy
USAID ZRDA Activity in Georgia

 "Working with wood has always been my favorite thing. I have worked in carpentry for a long time. I always try to create high quality products to keep my customers happy. I was thinking how to grow my business but I needed new equipment for that, and then USAID Zrda and Charity Humanitarian Center Abkhazeti (CHCA) came to the rescue! Without the zero-interest loan I wouldn’t have been able to buy the equipment that simplified process and increased productivity. Thanks to USAID Zrda and CHCA my business is fully operational. My average monthly income is up almost 30%” - Roin Shanava, of Zugdidi Municipality Village Rukhi.

Already, 79 projects have benefited from the USAID Zrda - CHCA no-interest loan program, and the total value of these loans is GEL 450,000 (approx USD 170,000).
