Mariam's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase fertilizers and drugs to treat their watermelon plants for parasites.
Mariam, 45 years old, lives in the village of Kakabeti, in the Kakheti region. Mariam is married and lives with her husband, Akaki, two adult sons and two daughters-in-law. Mariam has a small grocery shop in the village and is also actively involved in the family's agricultural business. The family has 3 hectares of vineyard and sell their grapes at the local market. On another 3 hectares of land, they grow watermelons and sell the harvested fruit to retailers. The family's average monthly income is 1,200 GEL. Mariam is requesting a loan to purchase fertilizers and drugs to treat their watermelon plants for parasites. This investment will increase the quality of the harvested fruits and their potential price as well, raising the family's income. Mariam plans to use the increase in income to purchase household appliances in order to improve the family's living conditions.
