Tamar's story

Tamar, age 36, is from the village of Vakijvari where she lives with her husband and two school-age sons. She is actively involved in an agricultural business and runs a dairy farm with one milk cow. Tamar produces cheese with the received milk for selling as well as for family consumption. In addition, Tamar and her husband-David grow nuts and maize on family-owned land and sell the harvest seasonally. David works as a watchman at the local fish farm and gets a small monthly salary (approximately $120). In order to meet her increasing family expenses, Tamar decided to start her own business. Tamar has noticed a high demand for used clothing in the market as local people can’t afford to buy new clothing due to their poverty. In response to the local market demand, she has requested a loan to purchase stock of used clothing to sell among her community members with a price mark-up. She plans to invest the profit in the same business and develop it in the future. Tamar hopes this loan will change her life.
