Vladimer comes from the village of Martkopi, Gardabani District. He is married and lives with his wife Nina, son and mother. Nina works as a teacher in a local school. Vladimer’s son is a joiner and works in his own workshop. Vladimer has a minibus; he drives passengers on the Martkopi – Lilo line. This line is always crowded, because Lilo is a wholesale centre of East Georgia and people from Martkopi and nearby villages often travel there for shopping purposes. Recently, Vladimer’s minibus had some problems and he had to stop work. He needs to repair his minibus in order to continue provision of quality transportation services to villagers.
Vladimer has requested credit to repair his minibus, which is an important source of income for him and his family. A small part of the credit will be used to renovate part of his house.
