Nino is 36 years old. She is married and lives in a small village in the Gurjaani district with her large family: her husband, Zaza, her two children (both attending the local school), her mother-in-law and her husband's aunt, both pensioners. Nino and Zaza earn their living through their agricultural business, in particular, livestock. They have pigs and sell piglets. They are very hardworking people and take good care of their livestock. The family owns a plot of land, where they grow peaches. Nino and Zaza are also busy selling goods. They buy agricultural products from local farmers and sell them on the local open market. The family's total average monthly income is 1,000 GEL.
Nino has requested a loan to purchase two pigs and more agricultural products for selling. She will diversify her assortment of fruits and vegetables and attract new customers, thus expanding her businesses. She will be able to sell more piglets and more products, which will increase the sales from her businesses. These expansions will increase the family's income accordingly. With increased income, Nino and Zaza will be able to repair their house and finance their children's studies.
