Lena is from the village of Rokhi. She is 40 years old and lives with her husband, retired mother and two sons. Lena’s husband works as an artisan locally and gets a small monthly income. The family earns their living through an agricultural business. They run a small dairy farm with a milk cow whose milk is used in cheese products. She sells the dairy products from her house. Additionally, Lena owns a pig and sells piglets seasonally. She works hard to make some savings and improve her family's living conditions. Lena requested a loan to purchase an additional milk cow. She will be able to produce and sell more cheese, allowing her to expand her business and earn a good profit. With these increased profits, she will be able to reinvest in her agricultural business, spend more on the family’s daily needs, and improve the family's living conditions.
