Mamuka, 42 years old, is from the Tskaltubo district of West Georgia, where he lives with his wife, parents and two children. Mamuka’s parents are provided with a retirement pension. The family is involved in an agricultural business. In particular, they run a small dairy farm of one calf and 2 cows, whose milk is used in cheese products. The cheese is sold at the local open market. Mamuka also grows maize and nuts on the family-owned land and sells the harvested products for a good price. The family has a pig and sells piglets seasonally. Mamuka also works locally as an artisan, earning a service fee.

According to the government’s estimation, the family belongs to the vulnerable poor category and gets a pension from the local government. Mamuka wants to make some improvements and repairs to his old house but does not have enough money to do so. Therefore, he is requesting a loan to cover the costs of house repairs, such as changing windows, painting, etc. This loan will enable Mamuka and his family to have suitable home conditions and to enjoy living in their house.
