He wants to expand the family farming activity, so he sought credit among local financial institutions. The Start-up Program, which is a joint initiative between Kiva and Credo, enables rural poor people to get loans for starting or restarting businesses. His application was approved under the framework of this program, to get a loan of 3,500 GEL. He will use the loan for purchasing grape vine seedlings and expanding the vineyard, and also to purchase calves. He will cultivate the purchased seedlings and will pick more grapes in future, after expansion of the vineyard. He will also raise the calves, and the family will start producing dairy products to sell -- for example, cheese and yogurt. They could also use the milk products for feeding the family. The new business initiative will give Demuri a chance to have financial stability.
