Demuri is from Tkibuli district. He is 63 years old and lives with his large family: his wife, parents, two grown sons, a daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. His parents are pensioners.
The family is involved in agricultural business. In particular, Demuri runs a small dairy farm. He has three calves, three milk cows and one buffalo, whose milk is used in cheese products which are sold at the local open market. In addition, he has a pig and five piglets. The family also owns a nut garden and does all relevant seasonal work to ensure a good harvest. Demuri also serves the local people as a mini-bus driver to earn additional monthly income. He is very hard-working man, with rich experience in his work.
Demuri requested a loan to purchase additional buffalo. He will be able to get more milk and increase the sales of his dairy products. Demuri will thereby raise his income. With the increased income, he plans to expand his agricultural business and improve the living conditions of the family.
