Kreditis Limiti

Line of Credit

Nino, a woman in her forties, led a comfortable life in the Soviet Union, but in modern Georgia she finds it hard to keep up with the changes. Nino resorts to the most wide-spread practice of getting a mortgage loan at high interest. Little by little, she gets deeper into debts, which becomes a vicious circle she cannot escape. Nino’s story is one among 172,300 families, who lost their abode as a result of mortgage loans between 2009 and 2013. This number of households amounts to 14% of Georgia’s population.
