Lali is from the Chkhorotsku district of West Georgia. She is 43 years old, married and lives with her daughter, son, brother-in-law and retired mother-in-law. Lali’s daughter is a student. Lali and her husband run an agricultural business. In particular, they own two calves and two milk cows, whose milk is used in dairy products. Lali produces cheese and sells it locally. Besides, the family has a pig and sells piglets seasonally. Also, they have a vineyard and a plot of land where nuts are grown. The family completes all relevant agricultural work to ensure a good harvest. Lali works hard, but she still doesn’t have enough income to build her savings and improve the living conditions of her family.
With the requested credit, Lali will finance the education of her daughter. Another part of the loan will be used for purchasing fertilizers for her family's nut orchard. After fertilizing and properly caring for her plants, Lali will get high quality harvest and sell it at a good price. This will significantly increase her family's income, improving living conditions for all family members.
