Rezo, 54, lives in a small village of Terjola District with his wife, Lola, a 26-year-old son, daughter-in-law, and his mother, who is retired. Rezo is a construction worker who works mainly in his district. Along with his main job, Rezo is actively involved in a family agricultural business. The family has six milk cows and six sheep. Rezo produces cheese which he sells in the village to local dairy product retailers. The family also sells lambs.
Rezo requested a loan to purchase construction materials for a cattle shed. His existing cattle shed is old with a broken roof and can’t keep domestic animals in normal conditions. The new building will be wider for more cows and sheep so in the future Rezo will have ability to expand his farm.
