Maia is 33 years old. She lives in a small village of Kashuri District with her family, husband Revaz, mother-in-law, who is a pensioner, and two children (13 and 15 years old). Both children study in the village school. Revaz is a worker in construction and gets a service fee for his work. Maia runs an agricultural business. In particular, she has a plot of land where haricot, maize, onions, garlic and potatoes are grown. She sells her harvested products on the local open market. In addition to farming she has a milking cow, produces cheese, and sells it in the village. Maia and Revaz work hard; they still don’t have enough income to set aside some savings for purchasing additional needed household goods or to finance the studies of their children. The total average monthly income of the family is 700 Lari.
Maia requested a loan for purchasing a milk cow and a calf. She will be able to produce more dairy food: cheese, curds, and yogurt. Thus, she wants to expand her business in order to make a good profit. With increased profits, she will be able to finance the studies of her children and purchase household items. As a result of the loan, the family will be able to improve their living conditions. Maia and Zviad hope for your generosity.
