Nino is 57 years old. She lives in the village of Kisiskhevi, East Georgia, with her son, 37-year-old George. Nino is a widow.
Nino and George earn a living through agriculture. They have milk cows. Nino produces cheese and sells it in the village. George has a truck. He takes wood from the forest and sells it in his village and nearby villages. The total average monthly income of the family is 500 Laris.
George has to change the tires of his truck, as the existing ones are old and it is already risky to drive in the forest. For this reason, George has stopped operations. Nino requested credit for purchasing four new tires for the truck. After changing the tires, George will be able to continue transportation and sales of wood. Nino and George will get planned income again.
