A loan of $5,000 helped to purchase a van for product transportation.


Sopio's story

Sopio is 29 years old, married and has two children. She lives in the village of Zeda Alisubani with her parents and takes care of them, as both of them have health problems. The family earns a living through small agricultural activities including breeding cows, whose milk is used in cheese products. Sopio’s husband grows grapes and makes wine to sell.

The income from agricultural activities is seasonal and in order to generate monthly funds Sopio and her spouse plan to buy a van and start a trading business. Specifically, Sopio’s husband will purchase fruits and vegetables from wholesalers and sell in neighboring villages. Sopio will assist him in this business. They will save on transportation costs and make deliveries easily. Sopio hopes the family initiative will be successful and this will increase their income.
