Zhora's story

Zhora is 64 years old. He lives in the village of Matani, East Georgia, with his family: his wife Natela (retired) and three sons (31, 25 and 18 years old). Zhora works as a bus driver, locally. His elder sons are workers in the village. The younger son has health problems and gets a monthly pension from the government. The total average monthly income of the family is 700 Laris.

Zhora requested funding to re-start the family agricultural business, which was stopped 10 years ago. He plans to cultivate family-owned land and sow maize. After harvest the maize will be sold and the family will get income. Also, part of the credit will be spent on purchasing four calves. Zhora will raise the calves and sell two of them for a higher price after 6-8 months. And the other two calves will stay on the family farm. As soon as they start milking, Zhora and Natela will start cheese production and sale.

Initiating the agricultural business will significantly increase the income of the family. They will be able to improve their living conditions.
