Goija is 49 years old. He lives in the Rustavi District of East Georgia with his family: wife, Nazarjet and a 21-year-old daughter.
Goija heads the family's farming business, which is their only source of income. Goija takes care of milk cows and sheep on the farm. He sells milk locally to dairy products retailers. Goija also sells lambs in the spring. The family's total average monthly income is 1000 Laris.
Goija requested credit to purchase food for the cows. When the cows are fed with high quality, natural food, their milking capacity will increase and the sales of milk will grow as well and so the family will get more income.
Goija plans to reinvest part of the increased income in the family farm and the other part will be used for satisfying the family's daily needs.
