Artur is 20 years old. He lives in a small village of Marneuli District with his parents. The family runs an agricultural business. They have a plot of land, where potatoes are grown. The family also has milking cows, calves and pigs. They are very hard-working people and take good care of their livestock. On the local open market they sell the potatoes they harvest and also the dairy products, cheese and curds, which they make.
Artur requested a loan to purchase calves and food for them. He will purchase hay, which will be used to feed the cattle during the fall and winter seasons. He will raise the calves and then sell them for a good price. This will increase the income of the family. As a result, Artur will be able to create better living conditions for his family.
