Norair is 48 years old. He is married and lives in a small village in the Akhalkalaki District with his family: his wife, parents, and three children (aged 23, 2, and 1). His parents are pensioners; his wife is a school director with a monthly salary. Norair is busy with his agricultural business. He has 2 milking cows and 3 calves, produces cheese, and sells it locally. He also has some agricultural land. The family's total average monthly income is 500 Georgian laris (GEL).
Norair requested a loan to purchase a tractor. He will cultivate the family's land and sow various vegetables there. After properly performed seasonal work, he hopes to get a good-quality harvest and sell it for a good price. He will also use the tractor to provide seasonal agricultural services to local farmers and charge a service fee for the work. This will significantly increase the family's income, and the increased income will enable Norair to reinvest in the family's agricultural land to expand it and make it more profitable. With all of these activities, the family's living conditions will improve.
