Japar is 30 years old. He is married and lives in a small village of Gardabani District with his big family: his wife, Amia, and his parents, brother, and sister-in-law. His brother offers a taxi service to the local population using his own car. Other family members are busy with an agricultural business.
They have a plot of land where greens are grown. They sell the greens on the local open market. The total average monthly income of the family is 1,000 Laris, which is hardly enough for food and other household expenses for six members of the family.
Japar requested a loan for purchasing a car. He will offer a taxi service to the local population using his own car, like his brother. Thus, the family will get additional income. With increased income, they will be able to improve their living conditions.
