Patima's story

Patima, age 28, is from the Zugdidi district, west Georgia. She is living with her husband and three children (1, 4 and 8 years old). The only one who makes money in the household is Patima’s husband, Zviad, who works as a security guard and gets a small monthly salary. In order to generate additional income, Patima decided to start up a grocery store near her house and sell various food products. The family needs money to buy construction materials and build a small store. They will buy stock of merchandise with their own savings. Patima will work as a salesperson and serve her clients in a friendly way. The family will get more income and they will be able to cover household expenses as well as improve their living conditions in future.
