Nelly is 62 years old. She lives in Khoni District, West Georgia, with her family: a 39-year-old son, 35-year-old daughter, daughter-in-law, and mother-in-law. Nelly runs an agricultural business with her family. They own a dairy farm with two milk cows. Nelly produces and sells on average 20 kg of traditional Georgian cheese. Along with the above mentioned, the family has a pig farm. They sell 12 piglets each year. Nelly grows maize on the family-owned 1.25 hectare of land. She uses maize for feeding the domestic animals.
Nelly has requested a credit for purchasing a horse. It will be helpful for her in taking the dairy products to the market; also, she will use it for going to the cornfield.

The family will be able to purchase additional household goods and to improve the family's living conditions.
