Leila is 43 years old. She lives in Mukhiani village, Tskaltubo district, with her 44-year-old husband, Merab, and their 10-year-old son, Aleksandre. The family has three milk cows and one pig. They make dairy products and sell piglets. Also, they own a plot of agricultural land. They use a small part of the land to grow greens, which they sell locally at the markets, together with the dairy products and piglets.
Leila requested a loan to build a greenhouse. She wants to use the empty part of the plot of land that they own, and develop their agricultural business. In the new greenhouse, she will grow different kinds of vegetables, which she will sell locally at the markets to get additional income. The profit will be reinvested in the same business, and Leila will have more income to provide better living conditions for her family.
