Gatiba is married. She is 54 years old. She lives with her three children who are 23, 21 and 10 years old. The youngest is a schoolboy. To provide decent support for her children, Gatiba's husband decided to go abroad to earn extra income. He is engaged in trading in the Russia Kaluga area and each month he sends money to his family. Now she cares for their children by herself.
For more than 22 years, she has been earning money by raising livestock. She started this business together with her husband. Today she raises livestock with the help of her son, and sells milk products and cattle for meat purposes.
Gatiba is taking out a loan for the purchase of materials to build a new stable in order to increase her livestock headcount. She thanks everyone who supports her, as this business is her main source of income.
