Nino is from Khashuri district. She is 48 years old and lives with her large family: her husband, two sons, two daughters-in-law, four grandchildren and a father-in-law, a pensioner. Nino’s husband and the younger son work at Georgian Railway and receive monthly salaries.
Nino runs the family agricultural business. In particular, the family cultivates a plot of land where haricots and capers are grown. Besides that, the family is involved in the animal husbandry business and has a milk cow, a calf and two oxen. Nino milks the cow and produces dairy products which are sold at the local open market. She works hard to make some money for savings and to improve the family's living conditions.
Nino requested credit for expansion of the dairy farm. She will purchase an additional milk cow, doubling the amount of milk sold. The family will have more income and will be able to provide better care for their children, as well as improve the family's overall living conditions.
