Gogita is from the village of Tskaltubo district. He is 24 years old and lives with his parents and 15-year-old brother. His brother goes to the local school.
Gogita's economic activity is a greenhouse where tomatoes, cucumbers and different kinds of greens are grown. Gogita does all the relevant seasonal work to insure a good harvest. The harvested production is sold locally.
In addition, the family runs a small dairy farm and has four milk cows, whose milk is used for cheese products. They sell cheese to cheese retailers. Gogita works hard to make some savings and expand his agricultural business.
He requested a loan to expand his greenhouse and purchase organic fertilizers. The loan will help him to provide financially for his needs. After fertilization and properly done agricultural work, Gogita will receive the good quality harvest and sell it for a good price. This will increase the income of the family. The increased income will be reinvested in his agricultural business to expand and make it more profitable.
