Gocha is 50 years old. He lives in a small village in Mtskheta District with his mother, Nutsa. Nutsa is a pensioner and Gocha is a truck driver. He offers transportation services to local farmers and gets a service fee for the work. He also owns a plot of agricultural land where he grows various vegetables.
Gocha requested a loan for repairing his truck. It is damaged and is already risky to drive, so Gocha has stopped operations. After repairing the truck, he will be able to offer transportation services to local farmers. He also plans to sow lucerne (a type of legume) on his plot. After properly doing this seasonal agricultural work, he hopes to get good harvest. He will sell the harvested lucerne to local farmers. This will increase his family's income. With the increased income, Gocha will be able to create better living conditions for himself and his mother.
