Lela is from the village of Vardisubani. She is 40 years old and lives with her husband and 18-year-old daughter who is a student. Lela’s husband works as an artisan locally and gets a monthly income. The family is involved in an agricultural business. They run a small dairy farm of two calves and two milk cows, whose milk is used in cheese products. They sell the dairy from their house. Lela works hard to make some savings and improve the living conditions for her family.
Lela requested a loan for purchasing milking cows. After the number of cattle is increased, the family will be able to receive more milk for their dairy. Thus, she wants to expand her business in order to earn a good profit. With increased profits, she will be able to reinvest in her agricultural business, as well as spend more on the family’s daily needs and the living conditions for the family will be improved.
