Vladimer leads his family's agricultural business. Specifically, they have three milk cows. Vladimer and his mother produce cheese and other dairy products and sell them in Zestaponi, a nearby town. Along with the dairy farm the family owns a 2000-square-meter vineyard. They sell grapes in the Zestaponi market as well. The total average monthly income of the family is 450 Laris, including the pensions of Vladimer’s parents.
