Gulsunda is from the Kvareli district of East Georgia. She is 64 years old and lives with her husband. Both family members are provided with retirement pensions. The family runs an agricultural business. In particular, they own a calf and a milk cow, whose milk is used in dairy products. Gulsunda produces yogurt and sells it locally. Also, they have a vineyard and a plot of land, where maize is grown. The family completes all relevant agricultural works to ensure a good harvest. They produce wine and sell the agricultural products at the local open market. Gulsunda works hard, but she still doesn’t have enough income to build her savings and improve the living conditions of her family. She has requested a loan to renovate her house. Her existing house is old and damaged. Gulsunda will purchase building materials and repair her home. Then, the living conditions of her family will be improved and they will be able to spend their evenings after a hard working day in a more comfortable environment. Gulsunda hopes for your help and kindness.
