Nino is 36 years old. She is married and lives in a small village of the Gardabani district with her family: her husband, Nikoloz, her mother-in-law, a pensioner, and two children.
Nino and Nikoloz earn their living through an agricultural business. They have beehives with bee colonies. They make ecologically clean honey and sell it on the local open market. Also, they have three milking cows and produce dairy products, mainly cheese and curds. Nino sells them in nearby villages. The total average monthly income of the family is 1,000 GEL.
Nino and Nikoloz requested a loan for purchasing beehives with bee colonies and one more milking cow. With the increased number of cows and bees they will be able to produce more dairy products and honey. This will increase the sales from their business. As a result of the increased income, the family will be able to repair the house and finance their children’s studies. It will positively affect the family’s living conditions.
