Ana and Eldar are farmers who grow potatoes, tomatoes, and cucumbers. They have several calves and a horse as well. Eldar also sells firewood. He goes to the woods in his car, gathers and prepares wood and sells it on the local open market. His family’s total average monthly income is 500 GEL.
Eldar has requested a 2,000 GEL loan to buy calves. He will raise them and then sell them in autumn when prices are up. He wants to keep one or two of the cows so that his wife and he can make cheese and curds to be sold in nearby villages.
