Tsitsino lives in the village of Sartichala, Gardabani District, East Georgia. She is 49 years old and lives with her three sons who are 20, 18 and 14 years old. Her youngest son goes to school and the elder ones work in the Ministry of Defense for the country. They get salaries, which are important sources of income for the family.
Tsitsino has a milk cow. She produces cheese and sells on average 20 kg of it locally to dairy-product retailers. Now she requested credit to purchase a second milk cow. She will double the amount of produced and sold cheese and thus increase her income by 100%. She will use her increased income for purchasing new household goods to improve the living conditions of the family.
