Nona’s family also owns two milk cows. Nona’s husband, Levan, handles the agricultural activities of the family. He makes cheese from the milk and sells it locally.
With the requested loan, Nona plans to increase stock-in-trade in the pharmacy, as the season for vaccination starts in a month and demand on vaccines will increase in the villages.
