Zurab's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase 4 calves for farm expansion.
Zurab is a 43-year-old farmer from the village Klde, South Georgia. He is married and lives with his wife Mariam. The income source of the family is agriculture. In particular, they have milk cows, produce cheese and sell it on the local market. Also, Zurab and Mariam grow potatoes and maize on the plot. Harvested potatoes and maize are sold in Akhaltsikhe (nearby town) open market. Along with the above mentioned, Zurab often purchases calves, grows them and after couple of months sells them for a higher price. Total average monthly income of the family is 650 GEL. Zurab requested credit to purchase 4 calves. He will sell grown calves by December for a higher price. Zurab plans to reinvest the profit in the same business – purchase more calves. This loan will help the family to expand their agricultural business and increase the profit. It will have a positive impact on family living conditions.
