K. Mamia lives in the village of Vedidkari, Martvili District. He has a greenhouse where he grows red and black roses. At the moment he has 2,700 rosebushes. Each bush bears on average 2-3 roses. He sells them to retailers.
Mamia started this business eight years ago. The greenhouse is already old and needs renovation. The requested amount will be used to replace damaged glass and plastic. This will allow him to maintain the required temperature in the greenhouse. It will positively influence the quality of the flowers and thus their price as well.
Mamia hopes that his income will increase. He plans to reinvest in the greenhouse. Also, he wants to renovate his house.
