Nanuli is 58 years old. She lives in a small village in the Martvili district with her family: two sons (27 and 30 years old) and two daughters-in-law.
Her sons are workers in construction and get a service fee for the work. Nanuli and her daughters-in-law are involved in the family's agricultural business. They have three milking cows and produce cheese. Part of the cheese is used by the family and the other part is sold on the local open market. Also, they have a plot of land where 350 nut trees are grown. The total average monthly income of the family is 850 GEL.
Nanuli requested a loan for cultivating her agricultural land. After cultivation, she plans to sow maize there. The family will work hard during spring and summer seasons and after the seasonal works are properly done, they hope to get good harvest. This will enable them to decrease dairy costs as they will make hay from the mowed grass to feed the cattle instead of buying it at a high price. Due to the above mentioned, the family will be able to get more milk and increase cheese production. As a result of this Kiva loan, the family’s income will increase, which will enable them to improve the family’s living conditions. Nanuli hopes for your help and kindness.
