Maka's story

Maka is 33 years old and lives in a refugee settlement in Tserovani. She has a husband, a father and two children (12 and 14 years old). Her children go to the local school. Maka’s husband is a soldier and gets a monthly income. Her father is provided with a retirement pension. Maka runs a poultry farming business. She has 50 hens and sells eggs locally. In addition, she works as a baker in a Georgian bakery to earn additional income. Maka is a very hardworking person, but she still doesn’t have enough income to make some savings and improve the living conditions of the family.

Maka requested a loan to repair her room. The existing maintenance is damaged and Maka plans to purchase building materials to renovate it. Due to the above-mentioned, the living conditions of the family will be improved and they will be able to spend their evenings after a hard day in a more comfortable environment. Maka hopes for your help and kindness.
