Mindia is from Kareli district of East Georgia. He is 37 years old, married and a father of four children. The family earns their living through an agricultural business. In particular, they run a small dairy farm of six calves and two milk cows, whose milk is used in cheese products. Besides this, Mindia owns 0.8 hectare of agricultural land, where potatoes, haricots and nuts are grown.
He does all the relevant agricultural works to ensure a good harvest. The harvested products, as well as cheese, are sold at the local open market. Mindia works hard to make some savings and improve the living conditions for his family.
He requested a loan to purchase calves. Mindia will raise them and, after several months, the family will be able to receive more milk. This will give them an opportunity to produce more cheese and increase sales. Mindia will use the received profit for financing the education of his children and improving the family’s living conditions.
