Vakhtang’s wife helps him to run a small-scale farm with two milk cows, two calves, and a pig. The family produces cheese with the received milk and sells it locally. In addition, they grow nuts, pineapples, guava, and kiwi on the family-owned land and they sell harvested products at the local open market.
Since the income is not enough to cover food and everyday expenses, Vakhtang decided to set up a workshop in his yard to generate an income. He used to work as a joiner, and he has rich experience in this field.
With the loan, Vakhtang will buy a joiner’s desk and all the other necessary equipment needed to start the workshop. He will work on special orders to serve local people. This start-up credit will be a great help for the family to increase their monthly income and improve their living conditions. Vakhtang thanks all Kiva lenders in advance.
