Dursun is from the village Botanika, East Georgia. He is 66 years old and lives with wife, son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. Dursun and his wife are provided with a retirement pension. His son lives and works abroad to help his family financially. In addition to his pension, Dursun earns a living through agricultural activities. In particular, he has a milk cow and three calves. Dursun produces cheese and sells it locally. He also grows maize and greens on the family-owned land. His daughter-in-law sells the harvested greens at the local open market. Dursun requested a loan for purchasing an additional milk cow and feed for his cows and calves for the winter months. He will purchase quality natural food and will count on a high yield of milk during the winter season, which will have a positive impact on the family's income and living conditions.
