Sopiko is 31 years old. She lives in a small village in Tskaltubo district with her two brothers. One of her brothers works in a petrol station and earns a salary. Sopiko and her second brother run an agricultural business. They have a bull and a plot of land, where they grow various vegetables, fruits, and maize. They sell their harvested products on the local open market. The family members work hard, but they still don’t have enough income to save for purchasing additional needed household goods or renovation of their house.

Sopiko requested a loan to repair her house. The existing house is very old and damaged; the furniture is old and uncomfortable, too. With this loan, Sopiko will be able to change the furniture and repair the house. The family's living conditions will be improved and they will be able to spend their evenings after hard-working days in a more comfortable environment. They hope for your help and kindness.
