Vazha's story

Vazha is a farmer from the village of Kurdghelauri, East Georgia. He is 49 years old, married and lives with his family: his wife Maya and their 19-year-old son. Maya works as a baker. Vazha earns his living through the family's agricultural activities. They have one pig and sell, on average, 12 piglets per year. Also Vazha grows corn on their 0.8 hectare of land. Part of the harvested maize is used to feed domestic animals and half is sold on the local market. The total average monthly income for the family is 500 Laris per month. Vazha has requested credit to purchase calves. He will feed them during the winter months and sell the grown calves for a higher price in the spring. The family's additional profit will be used to improve their living conditions.
