A loan of $975 helped to buy equipment for making cotton mattresses.


Nino's story

Nino, age 39, is from the village of Rgani. She lives with her school-age son, husband and retired mother-in-law. The family gets a small amount of social assistance because they live without a source of income below the poverty line. In order to generate funds and cover the feeding and household items, she plans to start a cotton mattresses making business. Nino needs money to buy special equipment for scrutching cotton. (This is a mechanical operation that, by breaking and beating the retted flax straw, separates the textile fibers in the stem of the plant from the woody matter and the bark). Nino will make mattresses and sell her produce among the locals. She will also get orders from them and earn a living. Nino hopes that her initiative will be successful and she will be able to improve the standard of living for her family members in the future.
