Tamar is from Keda district of West Georgia. She is 39 years old, and lives with her husband, two children and retired mother-in-law. The family earns their living through an agricultural business. More specifically, the family owns a plot of land where different kinds of vegetables, fruit and tobacco leaves are grown. Tamar and her family do all of the relevant agricultural work to ensure a good harvest. The harvested products are then sold at the local open market. Tamar is a very hard-working woman with a lot of experience in this work.
Tamar has requested a loan to purchase beehives with bee colonies. This will enable her to produce ecologically clean honey that she can then sell at the local open market. This investment will increase her family's income.
Another part of the loan will be used for home renovations. Tamar's existing house is old and damaged, so she is seeking a loan to purchase building materials to repair it. Once repaired, the living conditions of the family will be improved, and they will be able to spend their evenings in a more comfortable environment.
