The family has two milk cows and owns a plot of agricultural land where they grow grapes. The harvested products are sold locally at the Zestafoni markets. The family has a small monthly income.
Nargiz is a very experienced farmer, as she has been in this business for 25 years. With the requested loan, Nargiz will be able to pay the university fees of her younger daughter.
