Koba is 29 years old. He lives in Adjara, in the village of Kveda Tsinsvla. Koba and his wife Mziuri run an agricultural farm in the village. They have a one-hectare plot of agricultural land where various fruits and vegetables are grown. After the harvest season, the fruits and vegetables are sold to the retailers. Along with the above-mentioned business, Koba is a craftsman of gas counters. When he has orders from the villagers, he repairs gas counters and gets additional income.
With the requested loan, Koba and Mziuri will purchase a milk cow. They plan to produce Georgian cheese and sell it on the market. It will increase the income of the family. In the future, the couple plans to renovate their house, as it is already old and needs some remodeling. They hope that the cheese production will allow them to save for the renovation.
