George's story

George is 53 years old. He lives in the village of Kistauri, East Georgia, with his family: his wife Eteri, two sons (33 and 11 years old), a daughter (13 years old), his daughter-in-law and 4-year-old granddaughter. George works as a shepherd in the village. His monthly salary is 100 Laris. His elder son is a worker in the village. The younger son has health problems and receives a relevant pension from the government. His daughter goes to school. According to the Credo scoring system, George’s family belongs to the vulnerable poor category. Their average monthly income is 320 Laris, including the monthly pension of George’s son.

George requested a loan for re-starting the agricultural business of the family, which was stopped two years ago, because of his son’s health problems. With the credit the family will cultivate the plot of the land and sow maize. They will sell the harvest and receive additional income, which will slightly improve the living conditions of the family. Also a small part of the credit will be used for the renovation of a small part of the house, which is old and without any renovation.
