The family members are involved in agricultural business and grow apples, tomatoes, and garlic on a family owned land. Part of the harvested products is sold from their house and the rest from the nearest town's open market. The income from the agricultural activities is seasonal, and that’s why Venera decided to start her own business to generate monthly income.
Venera has applied for this loan in order to purchase a supply of clothing and household items at wholesale prices in Sarpi open market (near Turkish border) where prices are lower than they are in other parts of Georgia, and start a trading business.
Venera will be able to get more profit and have savings to satisfy the everyday needs of her family members. She awaits your generosity.
