Maia is from the Terjola district of West Georgia. She is 38 years old and lives with her husband, mother-in-law and two children (12 and 16 years old).
Maia’s mother-in-law is provided with a retirement pension. The children go to the local school. According to government estimations the family belongs to the vulnerable poor category and they get monthly social assistance.

The family is involved in poultry farming as well and has 50 hens. They sell their agricultural products in the nearby villages.
Maia has applied for this loan to increase the number of cattle. With the requested loan, she plans to purchase a milk cow.
