Gia is from Samtredia. He is 50 years old, married and lives with his family: wife – Iamze and two daughters (25 and 21 years old). Gia works as a construction worker in the village. Iamze leads the agricultural business of the family: a dairy farm with two cows and one calf. Iamze produces cheese and sells it locally to dairy product retailers.
Gia requested credit for purchasing construction materials for expansion of the cattle-shed. After the family has a bigger cattle-shed, they won’t sell calves and will raise them to have more milk for dairy production. It will increase the income of the family.
