Elene lives in the Kaspi district of East Georgia. She is 56 years old and lives with her husband, son, daughter-in-law and an infant granddaughter. Her son and husband serve local people as taxi drivers and get monthly income. Elene runs an agricultural business. In particular, she has a calf and two milk cows. She milks the cows every day and produces dairy products, which are sold in the nearby district. Elene is a very hard-working person, with a rich experience in her work.
Elene requested a loan to purchase a truck. Her husband will use the truck to take wood from the forest and sell it in their local village, as well in nearby villages. This will increase the family income during the winter season. The increased profit will be reinvested in the family agricultural activities, and all members of the family will improve their living conditions.
