Tamaz's story

Tamaz is a farmer. He has two buffalos and uses them to cultivate his 0.6 hectares of land. On his land Tamaz grows walnut trees and kidney beans. The harvested products are sold. His family consists of his wife, two children and brother-in-law. Each adult in the family gets 52 GEL per month from the government for living under poverty.

As the income is not enough, Tamaz decided to start an additional business. The Start-Up program, which is a joint initiative between Kiva and Credo enables him to get a loan of 2,000 GEL to purchase a cow. His wife will milk the cow every day and will produce cheese to sell.
