Shalva's story

Shalva, age 27, is from the Dmanisi district. He is single and lives with his mother, brother, sister-in-law, and two nephews. Shalva is a farmer and breeds one milk cow and ten piglets. He makes cheese to sell, as well as for his family to consume. His earnings are hardly enough to cover food and household costs and the family lives in poverty. The local government assists the family financially as they belong to the “vulnerable poor” category. In order to generate income, Shalva plans to start a business trading fruits and vegetables. With this loan, he will purchase fresh products in bulk and sell them on the local open market with a price mark-up. Shalva hopes his initiative will be lucrative and he will be able to increase his family's funds. Shalva and his family members are waiting for your generosity.
