Ramaz's story

Ramaz is from the village of Chkhenishi. He is 39 years old and married. Ramaz lives with his family; his wife Ketevan, 20-year-old son and 17-year-old daughter. His son is a student in high school and his daughter goes to school. Ramaz and Ketevan lead the family's agricultural business and have 6 milk cows. Ketevan produces and sells on average 80 kg of traditional West Georgian cheese per month. The family also grows maize and soybeans on the family-owned 2.5 hectare land. Part of the harvested corn is used for feeding the cows and the other part is sold locally. Total average income of the family is 750 Laris per month. Ramaz requested credit to develop a fish farm. He will purchase local species of fish and grow them near a dam. Starting from the spring season, the fish will start to spawn and start intensively selling. Part of the credit will be also used to purchase feed for the fish. Ramaz expects that development of the fish farm will raise the income of the family. Part of the increase in income will be reinvested in the same business and the other part will be used for financing his children’s education.
