Temur's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a mini-bus which he will use to distribute flour and bran.

Temur's story

Temur is 51 years old and lives in the village of Onoghia, West Georgia with his wife Nina. They are Internally Displaced Persons because of a military conflict which erupted in their country in the 1990's. They earn a living by running a small dairy farm where they make cheese which they sell locally. They earn about 400 Laris a month, including a pension for internally displaced persons which they receive from government. According to our data, this family is in the subsistence poor category. Temur is applying for a loan to buy a mini-bus which he will use to distribute bran and flour, products which many villagers use to make bread and feed their farm animals. He will buy these products wholesale from local farms and sell them to local groceries. He has already negotiated the prices these grocery stores will pay him. In the future, he would like to diversify his products as a way to increase his family's income and improve its living conditions.
