Anastasia is from the small village of Dighomi. She is 50 years old and lives with her husband and 12-year-old daughter. The family is involved in an agricultural business. In particular, they run a small dairy farm with a milk cow, whose milk is used for dairy production. Anastasia produces cheese products and sells them on the local open market. In addition, the family owns a greenhouse, where different kind of vegetables and greens are grown. They do all relevant agricultural works to ensure a good harvest. The harvested production is sold locally.
She requested a loan to purchase food for cattle. With this credit, she will purchase hay, which will be used to feed the cow during the fall and winter seasons. Since the cow will be fed properly in winter, Anastasia will be able to receive a planned amount of milk and produce dairy products. This will increase the income of the family. The increased income will be reinvested in the family's agricultural activities.
