Ia works as a hired worker at the local farmer's vineyard, in return for a small service fee. Her earnings are seasonal and unstable. Ia's husband is a mini-bus driver and the main income provider in the household. The couple works hard to generate income and improve their standard of living, but their earnings are modest and they don't manage to save money.
With the received loan, Ia will start a confectionery shop. She is good at baking and wishes to sell her production among local people. Ia will purchase construction materials and renovate a small store, located near her house. She will also purchase raw materials and bake various kinds of cakes.
Ia hopes her business will generate income since there is no other, similar store nearby. She hopes for your generosity.
